Do you love Science? Are you interested in sharing your passion for Science while traveling the world? If your answer is yes to both, we would like to invite you to join our 2016 Pueblo RISE program and be one of our science ambassadors in the Philippines, Thailand, Guyana and Jamaica! We need at least 6 volunteer instructors to facilitate the three day teachers camp in all the locations! Our 2017 schedule is posted here .
As a volunteer, you will be paying for your own return ticket to the destination country (e.g. Philippines and Thailand). Typically, tickets to Asia can range from 800 to 1500 Cad$ depending on when you book it and what airlines. We will try to fund raise to cover a small part of your tickets to Jamaica and Guyana (ticket price: 900$-1200$) Pueblo Science will pay for your inter-island flights as well as ground transportation to and from the teaching locations. Food and accommodation during the training (3 days, 3 nights) will also be paid by Pueblo Science.
You will pay for your own food and accommodation when doing your tours. Food will cost less than 15$ per day and accommodation is 25$ per night per person (shared accommodation). Pueblo Science will organize the tours requested by the group of volunteers.
