Seeking Instructors and Mentors
Seeking experienced Midwest beekeepers
The Midwest Master Beekeeping Program (MMBP) is looking for experienced beekeepers to serve as mentors and instructors (>=7 to teach, >= 3 to mentor) to program participants that are relatively new to beekeeping. These experienced individuals will be compensated in one of two ways: either with volunteer hours towards certification or with compensation as a paid independent contractor to the Midwest Master Beekeeper Program ($20/hour). Volunteers and Paid Contractors receive reimbursement for mileage, per diem, and overnight room if > 2 hour travel time. Feel free to advertise your own association to these participants.
We need individuals who can work either one Saturday or evenings twice a week for a class. You will be representing the Midwest Master Beekeeper Program as an advocate for the protection of honeybees.
If you are interested, please contact the MMBP director, Dr. Moneen Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org), 573-281-1272), to discuss your opportunities as an instructor.
*An individual cannot concurrently be a paid consultant and a participant in the certification program.
