The Community Organizer will be our frontline staff demonstrating the Project Neutral carbon calculator to the public and leading facilitated sessions for a diversity of groups and different populations. This is a role that demands excellent communication skills, the ability to be engaging and motivating, comfort around math and climate science topics, and the technical ability to be able to lead sessions online. A community animator may be talking to a high school classroom in the morning and retirees in the afternoon. The ability to adapt presenting styles and materials to the audience will be necessary. Beyond that, a genuine interest in people and helping them become part of the climate solution will be essential.
We expect the applicant will do their work remotely. Typically this type of engagement work would be in person and in group settings but with COVID-19 public health restrictions that will likely be impossible. As a result, applicants are expected to be proficient in online communications platforms. In particular, the ability to host online webinars and sessions both as a facilitator and from a technical perspective will be essential to success in this role. Training will be provided for the use and demonstration of Project Neutral’s web platform and guidance will be given to excel in facilitation work.

Key Responsibilities:
Lead Project Neutral webinars and online sessions to schools, workplaces, community groups and other populations
Communicate in a professional manner with participating organizations

Support participants in the use of the Project Neutral platform
