Work With Us
EcoWorks is at the forefront of a just and equitable transition to a low carbon future. Are you the leader we seek to take EcoWorks to the next level? If you are a dynamic leader with a passion for climate justice and community development, please read on. We're looking for someone with the vision, fundraising and communication skills, and operational experience who can lead this innovative, diverse and strategically powerful nonprofit to expand its impact throughout Detroit, the state of Michigan and beyond.
We seek a well-rounded leader with a passion for youth development and sustainability to help lead our Youth Energy Squad program (YES). We need someone who is driven to take ownership for all elements of the program, from budgeting and grant reporting to staff development and building collaborative relationships with dozens of schools and partners. The right leader will work collaboratively with an existing Co-Director and Program Manager to ensure excellence in our day-to-day work while continuing to move us toward our ambitious long-term vision of growing the next generation of green leaders in Detroit, Southeast Michigan, and beyond.
We seek a leader who can work holistically to make the organization stronger by managing our operations smoothly and growing our fundraising and outreach. Because of the dual nature of the role, strong candidates will offer both strong organizational and administrative skills paired with the ability to develop and implement a strategy to raise funds from a variety of donors. Flexibility, a willingness to plug in where needed, and a sense of ownership for project outcomes are essential.
