Organization: Take Me Outside
Location: from home, anywhere in Canada

About Take Me Outside

Take Me Outside (TMO) is a non-profit organization committed to educating Canadians about our connection with nature. Take Me Outside works collaboratively with other organizations, school boards, and individuals to encourage children and youth to spend more time outside through various advocacy projects and initiatives.

Position Summary

TMO is seeking a dynamic, focused, and self-motivated individual who is passionate about getting kids outside. This part-time position, based anywhere in Canada, will be integral in the day to day operations of TMO and will work with the Executive Director to grow and expand TMO.

We are looking for someone with a sound knowledge of outdoor and environmental education and well-versed in the issues within this field. The ideal candidate is someone who has an understanding of how to drive a non-profit organization forward.

Primary Responsibilities

Your primary role will be the coordination, implementation and expansion of existing TMO projects and initiatives, like Take Me Outside Day and the TMO Student Video Contest.

  • Experience working within non-profit sector
