Join Environmental Alternative Spring Break!

Are you passionate about the environment and working with youth? 

Want to work with amazing young people across the state of Washington?

Environmental Alternative Spring Break (EASB) provides a fully-funded opportunity for UW students to inspire interest in Environmental Science and Sustainability by travelling to rural and tribal communities in Washington over Spring Break and facilitating hands on environmental science projects. Through EASB, UW students will spend winter quarter co-creating an environmental science curriculum, and the week of spring break facilitating activities with middle schoolers around the state.

Winter Quarter: You’ll take a required 3-credit Winter Quarter Seminar (T/TH: 4:30-5:50). In this seminar, you’ll learn strategies for building curricula, managing a classroom, and teaching with a focus on equity. You’ll work with your team to build and finalize your curriculum.

Spring Break: You’ll travel with a team of 5 to one of our four partner schools: Brewster Middle School, Oroville Middle School, Curlew Middle School and Quileute Tribal School. You will stay at your program site and spend each day facilitating activities at the school and connecting with the students and community. All lodging, food, and transportation costs will be covered by our sponsors.

*No teaching or specific subject area experience is required to apply!*
