AWF Volunteers

"This was my 12th year as a volunteer for Payson's program. It is one of my favorite days of the year. Over the past 12 years we have trained all 4th grade classes and water waste has continually gone down in the Rim Country."
Bobby Davis , Volunteer

Arizona Water Festivals instill a deeper understanding of water in the earth system and Arizona's water resources. At an AWF, volunteers contribute to their community and celebrate science and water stewardship by guiding hands-on learning activities that activate deeper understanding of key water ideas in Arizona students.

We’ll train you on how the Water Festival works so you can feel confident when you teach the 4th grade students all about water. Then, at your Water Festival, you will teach (or assist with) the lesson for which you trained. We will provide lunch and snacks throughout the day.
