Wildlands Restoration Volunteers seeks a bilingual Community Engagement Coordinator who is passionate about WRV’s mission to heal the land and build community. This position will support WRV in engaging a diverse community of environmental stewards; this position will also support implementation of WRV’s Equity and Inclusion Initiative by engaging the Hispanic/Latinx community in Longmont and across the Denver Metro area.
The Community Engagement Coordinator will support a year-round team of experienced staff and will be aided by a large corps of dedicated and inspiring volunteer leaders. Experience with environmental education and ecological restoration is a plus, but on-the-job learning in restoration skills and techniques is also possible. Leadership and technical training opportunities are provided, and staff may attend additional projects that are of interest to them in order to gain additional knowledge and experience.
*Please note: WRV is continuing to allow staff to work from home, although office space will also be provided to all employees.
