|Experience Required:||2-3 years|
|State/Province:||CA - California|
Alliance for Climate Education (ACE) is the national leader in high school climate science education; its mission is to educate and inspire youth to take action to curb the causes of climate change. ACE accomplishes this mission through dynamic, award winning multimedia school assemblies that make the complex subject of climate science and solutions relevant, interesting, and fun. Following these assemblies, ACE Educators assist students in implementing carbon reduction programs in their schools and communities, and also provide youth leadership opportunities reaching well beyond campus grounds. Using this process of education applied to initial actions and then major projects, ACE grooms leaders who can influence peers and effect change.
ACE is a young, dynamic nonprofit organization ahead of the game in making climate science interesting and fun. ACE is data-centric and tech-savvy, nimble and creative, passionate and results-oriented, and believes firmly in the Power of Awesome. In its first two-and-a-half years, ACE has reached over 1 million high school students. ACE has a current staff of 35, an annual budget of $3 million, and is planning for significant growth over the next two years.
What we need: A dynamic, science-minded, education-driven performer to deliver our multimedia assemblies on climate change to high school students in Southern California - based in Los Angeles, with numerous presentations in San Bernardino, Riverside, Orange, and Ventura Counties. (Check out our trailer to get a taste of our presentation.) You’ll be in the field with high school students, communicating the essential science of climate change in a lively, fun and unforgettable way. After each presentation you’ll be working with youth to create ACE Action Teams that work on a variety of climate change projects, from reducing energy use on campus to throwing green proms. You’ll work from home, meet about once a week with the regional team (based in Los Angeles), with weekly national meetings with colleagues online.
