POSITION DETAILS


The International Living Future Institute (ILFI) seeks an experienced volunteer manager to support our global network of volunteers and policy-makers - our Ambassadors - as they help us to achieve a living future that is culturally rich, socially just and ecologically restorative. The role of the Ambassador Program Manager is to recruit and train Ambassadors and manage an effective global “Living Future Network'' made up of individual volunteers in the US and internationally.

The Ambassador Program drives the audience for ILFI’s mission, initiatives and programs by enhancing our community standing and visibility and facilitating deepening engagement among key stakeholders and global communities. Our elite Ambassadors are individual volunteers who are passionate practitioners and advocates for ILFI Certifications. Their primary volunteer service to ILFI is to deliver presentations and coordinate with the ILFI Business Development team to grow awareness and adoption of ILFI Certifications. Each year our Ambassadors conduct hundreds of presentations on ILFI’s twelve programs in more than 70 nations reaching thousands of professionals in the built environment.
