Education Volunteers

Engage with students on the mountain and in the classroom


Each year thousands of students participate in education programs offered by the Mount St. Helens Institute. MSHI programs reach students in their classroom and bring them to the mountain for day or overnight programs. Education Volunteers help support our school programs staff by assisting and leading guided educational hikes, teaching in-class activities, supporting our overnight programs, and more. If you enjoy working with children, primarily in grades 4th - 12th, and have a passion for teaching and sharing the wonders of the natural world with others, we’d love to have you join us as an Education Volunteer.
