REP Assistants are volunteers who assist a teacher participating in the Rouge Education Project by working in the classroom and on the field trip with the students at the Rouge River. This may include guiding students in conducting water quality tests, surveying the stream, collecting and identifying aquatic organisms, and helping students calculate results and enter data on the Internet. This is a unique opportunity for college students or other interested adults of all interests and backgrounds.
All training is provided; some experience working with children helpful.
