Tualatin Riverkeepers is seeking a dynamic and outgoing Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator to strengthen existing partnerships, develop new partnerships, and recruit volunteers with a passion for the work of TRK. This position will focus on connecting community stewardship needs with TRK’s mission and goals to create positive outcomes for the watershed. The Coordinator will recruit and train volunteers while organizing TRK’s key events over the year, including stewardship projects, Discovery Day, and the Green Heron fundraiser.

  • Work with partners throughout the watershed to identify and build stewardship opportunities, creating projects that utilize volunteers to address priority conservation and stewardship work.
  • Represent TRK on committees, at public events, and with select corporate and civic organizations in the watershed.
  • Build a Stewardship Crew Leader program, developing appropriate training for volunteers to build skills and experience to lead restoration and stewardship projects on their own.
  • Assist Executive Director in executing seasonal fundraising and membership campaigns.
  • Supervise volunteers and select staff, including AmeriCorps members, seasonal interns, and others as requested by Executive Director.
Qualifications include:
  • Experience coordinating volunteers, with an emphasis in environmental stewardship and restoration.
