Director of Community Engagement – Riverkeeper

ABOUT THE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT PROGRAM: Riverkeeper works with volunteers to reinforce our mission and broaden the base of supporters who promote our work. We expand Riverkeeper’s program capabilities by organizing volunteer projects, engaging in grassroots campaign advocacy, strengthening initiatives like citizen science and pollution monitoring, educating the public, developing strategic partnerships with individuals, businesses and organizations, and promoting engagement opportunities among New York City and Hudson Valley residents.

In 2017, over 2,000 volunteers dedicated nearly 8,000 hours of service to Riverkeeper, with the Riverkeeper Sweep as the program’s signature event. The new Director will need to create a vision for Community Engagement over the next five years to continue to build on the great work that this team has been doing. The Director of Community Engagement reports directly to Riverkeeper’s President. The Director will oversee two full-time staff members, the Campaign Advocacy Coordinator and the Outreach Coordinator, as well as seasonal volunteers and interns.
