Environmental Education Program Directors
The U.S. Department of Labor reports that the green industry is growing and numerous jobs are expanding to meet demand. While the DOL does not report specifically about environmental education prospects, it does show that employment for instructional coordinators is expected to grow faster than the average for all occupations through 2020. Increased interest in environmental issues coupled with new and changing environmental laws and regulations is causing many schools and organizations to create and expand their environmental education programs. Environmental education program directors will be needed to help create and enhance programs to educate youth and adults in various communities.
