This includes helping ensure follow through of the podcast, fundraising, knowledge mobilization, and political/ legislative involvement.

Ideally, this person will have relevant experience that draws from the established principles and goals of the Sierra Club.

Responsibilities:

  • Capacity for ~2-5 hours of work/week
  • Taking part in the podcast, fundraising, knowledge mobilization, and political/legislative movements

  • Interests in taking initiatives to enhance to club, and working independently on delegated tasks
  • Excellent organizational, time management and communication skills
  • Commitment for thoroughness and accountability
  • Strong personal values of kindness, compassion, willingness to learn and unlearn
  • We are a volunteer-based team, and no prior formal experience is required. We want to offer an opportunity for youth to get formal work experience and to build a portfolio with the support of a strong organization! If you have a portfolio of work you are proud of, we would love to take a look.
