We currently have the following positions available:

The School Sustainability Associates (SSAs) provide opportunities for teachers, students and schools champions to directly contribute to the sustainability of their school and community by providing educational tours at our two Education Transfer Stations, in-class or virtual teacher training and instructional support for student action projects for elementary, middle, and high school classrooms and student groups throughout Alameda County. This educational support may include an introduction of environmental principles, student-led environmental waste audits of school and home resource use, activities for student action to reduce the school’s environmental footprint, outreach and education by students to the larger community, and reflection on and celebration of progress and achievements. In addition, SSAs may work and collaborate on agency initiatives, like school infrastructure, provide technical assistance and training to diverse audiences and promote campaigns, such as the agency’s Stop Food Waste community outreach campaign, and Carbon Farming projects. School Sustainability Associates work in a team environment at schools, at the educational field trip centers, residences, at the agency, and in multiple community venues.
