EarthGen is seeking a collaborative and strategic leader to be its next Executive Director, leading our efforts to grow our impact in the years ahead. A Washington State based nonprofit, EarthGen brings locally relevant science-based learning opportunities to students and school communities who are farthest from educational and environmental justice. Because of EarthGen, students all over Washington state are learning about the effects of climate change and other environmental issues on their own communities, taking action, and becoming leaders for change.
Building on a successful decade of growth and measurable impact, EarthGen has a big vision for the future: we will grow EarthGen’s impact in both breadth and depth, so that more teachers and students across Washington will have access to high quality climate-science education and meaningful opportunities to make environmental change. EarthGen is seeking a leader who is inspired by this ambitious vision and shares our commitment to K-12 education and environmental justice.
We are eager to meet with candidates who have strengths in these areas:
Building strong partnerships across many diverse communities, fields, and sectors
Strategic thinking and results-based problem solving
Deep commitment to leading with an equity and environmental justice lens
Willingness to be a “fearless fundraiser” in support of EarthGen’s mission
Experience as a collaborative and inclusive team leader, and readiness to lead a thriving nonprofit
EarthGen’s mission is to equip young people to become changemakers for a healthy environment. Our programming focuses on critical and current environmental science issues that are affecting communities in Washington State every day: from air quality and pollution in Puget Sound, to wildfires, floods, and other adverse impacts of climate change. Our youth will inherit this legacy and need to be prepared, and their teachers need and deserve support to understand and teach these complex topics effectively.
Through EarthGen’s science-based, action-oriented programs, young people gain the knowledge, skills, and experience they need to become leaders for climate solutions and environmental justice.
