Senior Partnerships Manager

The Senior Partnerships Manager is a full-time, senior-level position reporting to the Executive Director. This role will focus on building strategic partnerships with environmental groups, municipalities, schools, and youth serving non-profits, particularly those that are BIPOC-led or focused on serving communities of color. This individual will work collaboratively with key staff to fund partnership efforts through both fee-for-service and philanthropic funding, developing a funding pipeline that supports our work with partners. Examples of partnerships we have previously developed include sending a crew of young adult EarthCorps members to help with creosote debris removal in support of the Samish Indian Nation and providing support for an internship with the Black Farmers Collective. It is our goal to expand and deepen these types of efforts. This role requires strategic thinking, an entrepreneurial spirit and strong collaboration skills.
