Eco-School Network is currently hiring for a new program manager!
This is a powerful opportunity to be in the epicenter of an extraordinary network of parents, students, and teachers making positive change in Oregon schools. Unlike many gigs in the world of sustainability education, this position supports 100+ motivated change-makers who are already gung-ho about making schools greener and healthier. Most changemakers are parents of K-8 students leading projects that advance sustainability at their elementary schools. The primary task for this position is to be a champion for our change-makers – keeping them well equipped, encouraged, and connected to each other as they lead their projects.
Ready for a career that makes you feel both challenged and appreciated? The scope of influence of this position is great, as Network volunteers engage tens of thousands of students. The range of activities is vast too. As one of two paid staff (plus consultants and volunteers), this person will work closely with our caring Executive Director. This is an outstanding leadership-development opportunity that will give you a clear understanding of how to run a nonprofit. The ideal candidate will be a self-starter with a positive can-do attitude, an excellent communicator, a relationship-builder, and someone who will carefully document the impacts of our changemakers.
