Volunteer with EENC

Want to get involved with EENC?  EENC is always looking for help to help with committees, action projects, and special events!  Volunteering is great way to help other educators across our state, share your voice to help EENC better serve our professional community, and it's a chance to get to know some really cool people.

Have questions about volunteering? Contact Lauren Pyle.

Current Opportunities

Content Curators

Are you active on social media and have an amazing EE-related feed? Or are you plugged in to state-level environmental education news or on tons of EE organizations' mailing lists?  If you regularly come across news, features, videos, images, and resources that you think other people in North Carolina's EE community should be aware of, EENC could use your help as a content curator for our social media communications!  Ideally this position should take about an hour a month - just enough time to click "forward" or "share" for the things you're already discovering.  We're seeking 3-5 people to fill this role.  

Mini-Grant Reviewers

Want to help us decide who EENC awards this year's mini-grants to?   Become a reviewer!  We usually need help 6 volunteers to rank the proposals.  Requirements for being a reviewer:

  • You are not planning to submit a mini-grant application this year.
  • You have time during the month of March to review a maximum of 8 applications (estimated 10-15 hours).  Each application will include up to 8 short-answer responses (capped at 600-1200 characters each).
  • You can use Excel or Google Sheets to score each application using a provided rubric, and return your scores via email.

Contact Lauren Pyle to get involved in either of these opportunities.

Upcoming Opportunities

Looking ahead for where you can help?  We'll post the details for each of these as we get closer, but these are annual opportunities we generally ask our community to get involved with:

  • Development Committee (January-February)
  • Conference Session Proposal Reviewers (April-May)
  • Conference Scholarship Application Reviewers (May-June)
  • Awards Committee (August-September)
  • Conference Volunteers (September)
  • Section Committees (ongoing, as openings arise)
