Education program seeks volunteer to help with student correspondence

Do you live within an hour or two of Mount Rainier? Are you looking for a way to help out over the winter months? Do you enjoy correspondence and working with kids?

Then we have a perfect opportunity for you!

Mount Rainier National Park's education program is looking for an individual to help respond to student correspondence. You must be willing to meet at the park's Education Center at 55210 238th Avenue East in Ashford one day per week, and pass a background investigation for use of government computers. Duties will include answering e-mail, writing letters in response to physical correspondence, stuffing envelopes with standard educational packets, and occasionally more complex or creative tasks. For instance, the park frequently receives "Flat Stanleys" in the mail that need to be photographed on site and returned with souvenirs of their visit.

The amount of correspondence varies greatly from week to week. Some weeks the work adds up to only a few hours of effort, while other weeks it may take all day to sort through the whole mail bag. Either way, you'll free up park staff for other duties including leading and planning educational programs. And you'll be dealing with some of the m
ost creative and interesting correspondence the park receives!

If you're interested (or have questions), send a brief resume to Fawn Bauer, Education Program Manager, at Fawn_Bauer (at); call 360-569-6591; or send your own mail to 55210 238th Ave E, Ashford, WA 98304.

===UPDATE 11/25/2014===
Looks like our need is filled at least through the end of the calendar. Feel free to let us know, though, if you're interested in helping in future!
