Grassroots Organizer, Potomac Conservancy

Do you love talking to people about your passion for clean water and helping them find theirs? Is empowering local residents to make a difference your thing? Do you believe that change comes from collective action? If so, Potomac Conservancy is seeking an energetic and creative self-starter to join our mission for clean water. 


Who we are: Founded in 1993, Potomac Conservancy believes the foundation of healthy, vibrant, and resilient communities start with clean water. As the region’s leading clean water advocate, we shape the broader effort to ensure the Potomac River boasts clean drinking water, healthy lands, and connected communities. You will be joining a small but mighty team who work every day to fight for clean water through building a local inclusive movement of impassioned river advocates.


Grassroots Organizer: The Grassroots Organizer is responsible for the creation and nourishment of community driven volunteer teams that leverage hands-on stewardship and outreach to inspire clean water action, which addresses root causes of pollution through civic engagement and advocacy. Working in the larger DC Metro area, our clean water advocacy efforts are informed by communities, our Policy team, and our Clean Potomac Plan. The Organizer will interpret a broad strategic vision for community action in a local context, requiring the ability to listen to community needs and enact change.


To support this objective in the first year, the Organizer will also manage four regional days of service around our Potomac Stewards and Growing Native programs, organize summer recreation events, and plan and lead 6-10 private events for sponsors annually. In the out years, workplans will be dependent upon new ideas coming from the Organizer, community needs, and organizational priorities.
