About Rising Sun:

Rising Sun is a premier nonprofit organization working at the intersection of economic equity and climate resilience in the greater California Bay Area since 1994. With offices in Oakland and Stockton, our workforce development programs are grounded in resiliency and specialize in serving youth, women, and individuals in reentry. Opportunity Build provides a pathway out of poverty for job-seeking adults experiencing barriers to employment through pre-apprenticeship training, case management, and career placement in the building trades and construction. Climate Careers gives local youth from low-income households their first green job, training them to provide free residential energy efficiency services to priority households throughout the nine Bay Area counties and San Joaquin County.


About our culture:

We are mission-driven and work hard because we care deeply about what we do. We are deeply committed to equity and inclusion and want to do the self-work necessary to be successful in these areas. We like working with each other and we like to make work fun. We like to try new things and encourage each other to find unique and unconventional ways to tackle tough problems. We celebrate every birthday, eat a lot of dessert together, and recycle the same birthday candles until they’re gone. There’s usually at least one dog hanging around the office, and sometimes a staff member’s kid or two as well. We want people to grow. We like to promote from within and build each other up, but we also like to bring in new ideas and different perspectives. We’re looking forward to meeting you and hearing about how you can contribute to making Rising Sun a great place to work.
