AFTER SCHOOL CLUB

YES Club Teachers

We need teachers who want to bring something extra to their school. Get paid to teach an afterschool club for 4th- and 5th graders.

Say YES to YES Club

Catamount Institute’s Young Environmental Stewards (YES) Club, is an award-winning, innovative, science-based program designed for 4th and 5th graders. YES combines environmental science, field trips, guest speakers, community service, and leadership in one fun and active program that will get students outside, excited about science, and engaged in real research. At the end of each semester, students choose and complete service and research projects to present at Colorado College where they meet college students and enjoy campus tours

We need you!

Desire to use your education skills in an innovative science and nature based program? Would you appreciate structure with provided training and lesson plans, but the flexibility to adapt lessons to fit your style, students, and location? Catamount Institute is seeking teachers, substitutes, principals, or parents who actively participate at their local schools who would like to start a YES Club.

Learning Outcomes

YES Educators will attend an initial training at the start of each semester to meet colleagues, experience lessons and obtain resources and materials. Over the course of the semester, educators will teach lessons at the chosen school. YES class size is capped at 13 students and meets for 2 hours per week. At the end of the semester, YES classes and educators will participate in the Student Research Symposium at Colorado College where each YES student will present service projects, meet college students, and enjoy tours and mini-lessons.
