Green Action Centre is seeking an energetic, creative, highly organized, and detail-oriented individual to fill the role of Indigenous Programs Outreach Coordinator with our First Nations Waste Minimization Project team.
The successful candidate will take on primary responsibility for developing, coordinating and delivering school presentations (Grades 1 to 12) in First Nations communities around Manitoba, including northern and remote communities. This requires a high degree of planning and coordination with schools, principals, teachers and communities. The Outreach Coordinator will also play a key role supporting the First Nations Waste Minimization Project Coordinator in the scheduling, logistics and delivery of community/public events and workshops or conferences, and a collaborative role supporting the Community Pathfinders and their direct work on waste minimization with Manitoba First Nations.
The candidate should have experience working with schools and presenting to students, and ideally be familiar with waste minimization and recycling options in Manitoba. Informal training and orientation to waste reduction will be provided.
This position is an excellent opportunity for a candidate who is strong on environmental education and keen to support Manitoba First Nations in their efforts to reduce waste and enhance recycling.
In cooperation with the other First Nations Waste Minimization Project team members, the Outreach Coordinator will have the following responsibilities:

This is a full-time (35 hours per week) position for 15 months, ending March 31, 2021, with a possibility of extension. Compensation for the full 15-month term is $45,000 – $50,000, depending on experience.
