Green Schools Nova Scotia School Engagement Staff
Position: Schools Engagement Officer
Start Date: January 9, 2012 -- March 31, 2012 (with potential for renewal)
Organization: Clean Nova Scotia, 126 Portland Street, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia
Green Schools Nova Scotia is a unique program designed to promote sustainability in Nova Scotia's Schools. Building on existing strengths within participating schools, Green Schools Nova Scotia staff help schools to plan for sustainable change over time within their whole school community, to engage their school population, and to connect to resources and opportunities that augment those plans. Currently a pilot project until March 2012, the Green Schools Nova Scotia program works with 16 schools across the province and is recruiting and adding more schools in the New Year.
Our aim is to facilitate a culture of sustainability in Nova Scotia's schools, create leaders, help them to track the improvements they make, and to share their success stories with other schools and the greater population.
The successful candidate will be interacting with participating and recruited schools, staff, community members and students. They must possess excellent time management, presentation and interpersonal skills. There will be travel involved with occasional overnight stays necessary, so familiarity with standard desktop technology for online updating of tracking reports and social media will be essential.
