Descrição

BrightAction Communities (BAC) is on a mission to help communities take action on climate change by making it easy for community members to learn about climate solutions and take action in their home and beyond. Over 40% of U.S. emissions come from 5 everyday household activities where we have the power to make a difference on climate change today. We have solutions for all these activities that also save money, improve health and create local jobs. With the new IRA incentives, there are even more opportunities for everyone to take action and make a big impact.

BAC is a non-profit that provides cities, counties and non-profit community based organizations across the U.S. custom online and program tools to drive community engagement on climate solutions. Our online platform, BrightAction.app, makes it simple, easy, and fun for residents to learn about solutions, take action, and track progress. We help with how-to guides, estimates on financial savings and climate impact and connect residents to work together. At BAC, you have the opportunity to make a significant impact in creating a safer, healthier future and a better today.

The mission of our Community Engagement and Program Manager is to support our communities in using our program to drive climate solutions engagement.

  • Develop local volunteer leaders to help expand the reach and engagement in the community.
  • Organize or attend and support local events to expand participation and engagement.
  • Help develop outreach and marketing materials and effective communication campaigns with strategies tailored to specific local community culture and demographics.
  • Develop presentations and materials to support engagement.
  • Track key metrics for community programs including outreach, engagement and participation rates. Identify new opportunities and provide recommendations to enhance and improve programs.
