The job involves organizing individual student composting, decreasing food waste on campus, and helping organize composting awareness events. It involves ~5 (paid) hours of work per week (and is available to both work-study and non-work study students).
The position is for this semester, and starts as soon as possible! The only requirements are that you must be over 20 years old and carry a valid driver’s license, and you must have a passion for composting :)
If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, or if you have any questions, email wesleyancompost[at]gmail[dot]com.
There’s no deadline, but apply sooner rather than later.
