HarborLAB Staff Volunteers (regular volunteers who lead programs or act as safety escorts), please obtain or renew your Red Cross adult and pediatric certifications for AED, CPR, and First Aid. We can reimburse your costs. Later this summer we will offer Safety Around Water and Basic Water Rescue classes to staff volunteers.
Event Volunteers (those who occasionally pitch in to help out with programming and projects) are not required to have this training.
Staff Volunteers and Event Volunteers who directly interact with children are also required by our contract with Open Space Institute to complete Darkness to Light training to recognize signs of child abuse and to prevent its occurrence.
Staff Volunteers are eligible for reimbursement for environmental education training. One great opportunity in the near future is a course in E-STEM (Environment-Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Education offered by the Civic Ecology Lab of Cornell University.
