For over 30 years, Earth Island Institute has been a hub for grassroots campaigns dedicated to conserving, preserving, and restoring the ecosystems on which our civilization depends. By serving as a support system for creative individuals, we are helping to grow the environmental movement. Our sponsored projects address many of the world’s most pressing environmental and social issues and work toward a sustainable future through a combination of education and activism — informing decision-makers, the media, and the general public about global threats and opportunities.

Earth Island Institute’s Project Support Program provides fiscal sponsorship, resources, training, technical assistance, and peer relationships to more than 75 environmental projects.  Our goals are to strengthen the capacity of each project to effectively address environmental issues, create synergy between activists working on similar topics, and allow project directors to focus their energy on their campaigns and programs.

·     Coaching & Training - This position will be part of a team of experts providing coaching, training, and technical assistance to project leadership in the areas of organizational management, supervision, fundraising and scale-up of infrastructure. 

·     Communication & Outreach This position will help to manage communication & outreach to projects.

·     New Project Selection & Orientation- This position will provide input into new project applications and selection.

·     Special projects and other administrative duties as assigned – depending on the candidate and their background, several special projects are possible including assisting projects with grant proposals, financial literacy and budget projections, or human resource support, staff on-boarding and supervision.  

 Qualifications:

The ideal candidate will demonstrate, through training and experience, strong customer service, communication and administrative skills, and a willingness to accept and take on new challenges.  Familiarity with nonprofit regulations and grant management is required. Qualified applicants must be self-directed, well organized, and focused yet flexible when faced with constantly changing priorities. Collaborative mindset and team building ethic.
