Colorado Trout Unlimited (CTU) is seeking two part-time Regional Trout in the Classroom (TIC) Coordinators, one for the Front Range and one for the Western Slope. These 10-month positions will work an average of 10 - 15 hours per week. As a Regional TIC Coordinator, you fill a key role to the overall success of Trout in the Classroom (TIC) Program. You will help TIC Educators, Volunteers, and Chapter Leaders learn, prepare for, and understand TIC processes, equipment, maintenance, and the overall TIC program.

The TIC program in Colorado currently reaches over 13,000 students, educators, and community members. We have over 50 schools/sites currently participating in the TIC program and several others on our waiting list. The Regional TIC Coordinator positions will add additional capacity and support for the TIC program and allow us to grow in a sustainable way and increase our program impact.

* Offering additional programs to TIC sites and training-the-trainer so TU Chapters can offer program support as volunteers are able.
* Engaging TIC educators and student participants with CTU to strengthen their connection to river conservation, their local watershed and TU.

Requirements

* Have a degree, or be engaged in undergraduate or graduate studies, in a science/education related field. Preference will be for a biology or fisheries major with K-12 education interests.
