About the Role

The Bluewater Education Foundation is looking for a capable and enthusiastic Program Interpreter for programming during the months of June, July, and August.

General Information About the Land Learning Program:

We have received grant funding to develop site-specific, Indigenous land-use based educational programs, delivered throughout Grey/Bruce to children, youth, and adults. This project will allow us to deliver on our vision of providing immersive experiences in nature and encouraging personal commitment to environmentally sustainable actions in the communities we serve, growing a stronger connection to the land throughout the region.

This project, and the program it leads to, will allow us to support outdoor education, connection, and experience throughout the region, regardless of the costs or limitations on travel that might be imposed by future pandemics, inflation (especially in the cost of fuel), or other unanticipated setbacks.

The focus on Indigenous land use is an intentional choice that we hope will increase the sustainability of the program - learning in and about nature can happen anywhere, because nature is everywhere. Learning about the natural world where we are will allow future generations to value the environment where they are.

Information About the Available Position:

The Program Interpreter position will be full time (35 hours/week on average) commencing June 24th, 2024 (or as soon as available) and finishing on or around August 30th, 2024.

Roles and Responsibilities of the Program Interpreter:

The successful candidates will help deliver and promote the program at the Bluewater Outdoor Education Centre.

The successful candidates will enthusiastically deliver the program on-site, off-site, and at external events.

Pending available time, resources, and programming, the successful candidates may also assist with projects or delivery of public programming that will take place at the Bluewater Outdoor Education Centre during their term of employment. This could include guiding activities for visiting university students, assisting guests at astronomy evenings, or helping to clear and mark new or overgrown trails on the property.

Rate of Pay: This position is paid hourly at a rate of $17.55-19.55/hour, depending on experience and qualifications.

Certifications and Qualifications:

Successful candidates will have:

- a valid driver’s license and access to a reliable vehicle,
- experience safely leading groups in an outdoor setting,
- strong outdoor skills (additional certifications an asset) and knowledge of our local ecology,
