Volunteering with Canopy

Become an Education Volunteer!

Do you have a passion for the environment and work well with students? Canopy is offering an exciting volunteer opportunity to blend environmentalism and education in their K-5 lessons. Canopy is looking for active volunteers to support their in-person classroom lessons, offered to East Palo Alto and Mountain View elementary schools.

Lessons will run during the school week and school hours. Lesson duration ranges from 60-90 minutes and requires volunteers to assist with classroom discussion, material support, and management.

If interested, please email Paul LaVallee at [email protected] to set up a short phone call to discuss training and program details.

“Taking only a fraction of a single Saturday, helping with the Young Tree care Survey from Canopy provided me with a feeling of being able to give something back to my community.”
