Now Hiring: Education Director
Elderberry Wisdom Farm is recruiting our Education Director. We are seeking an earth-based environmental leader to help develop our TEK social and economic initiatives. The salary level ranges from $60,000 - $72,000 depending on prior experience and includes a health insurance policy and generous paid vacation benefits. There is great growth potential for this position potentially leading to the Executive Directorship.
This individual will be responsible for our Native Agriculture Biodiversity Accelerator project and our Traditional Ecological Knowledge Workforce Development project. They provide culturally-tailored training for Native Americans pursuing conservation, agricultural and horticultural careers. Trainings include academic classroom education plus experiential service learning and are held during spring and fall internships. We also provide our interns with opportunities for Winter Externships and Summer Externships during the winter and summer months so they can expand their career training.
Our organization is young and located south of Salem in rural Marion County, so it can take longer for us to find the right individual. This issue is not unique to our organization. PBS News Weekend just reported on the nationwide shortage of educators, “How Montana is tackling the teacher shortage crisis in rural schools”. We are expanding outreach and asking colleagues, partners and others to help us get the word out about the Education Director position. If you and your organization can help us spread the word by announcing this and sharing the link among your colleagues, we thank you!
