Current Openings - Spring 2016
Environmental Outreach Canvasser
Earthroots is a grassroots non-profit environmental organization dedicated to protecting wilderness, wildlife and watersheds, through research, education and action. We are currently seeking outgoing, responsible, environmentally-minded individuals to join our door-to-door canvass. For almost two decades our dedicated canvass team has played an essential role in helping the organization achieve its goals. The position involves engaging people in residential neighbourhoods in Toronto to raise awareness about the organization and our campaigns, get petitions signed, and ask for financial support. This is a paid part-time position.
While canvassing has its trials and tribulations and is not for everyone, this could be the perfect job for you! Spreading the word about important environmental issues while working with a group of politically active and like-minded individuals can be very rewarding. This position allows flexibility in terms of scheduling your shifts each week and also provides a lot of insight into the inner-workings of a small environmental group – it is a great way to get your foot in the door at Earthroots. Finding employment that you can feel good about is challenging these days – if this position sounds like a good fit for you, then look no further!
Post-secondary education in an environmentally related discipline, and/or past experience working or volunteering in the not-for-profit sector are an asset, but not required.
