Jeff Chandler

Jeff has recently joined the team at Schools Out Washington as a Youth Development Program Quality Coach, bringing experience in environmental, STEM, and arts education. Before moving to Seattle, Jeff spent four years working with the National Environmental Education Foundation in Washington, DC, connecting educators, youth, and the public to environmental knowledge they could use every day to make a positive impact for their communities and the planet. He is excited to continue his passion for creating constructive hands-on place-based learning opportunities for youth through the work of SOWA.
Graduating from Hamilton College with a BA in Creative Writing while maintaining minors in Biology and Studio Art, Jeff enjoys combining his creative interests to help communicate environmental science and share the incredible interconnectedness and diversity of the natural world. Outside of work, Jeff can be found exploring any of Washington’s abundant public lands, sketching, and baking bread.
