Now in its second century, Audubon is dedicated to protecting birds and other wildlife and the habitat that supports them. Audubon’s mission is engaging people in bird conservation on a hemispheric scale through science, policy, education and on-the-ground conservation action. By mobilizing and aligning its network of Chapters, Centers, State and Important Bird Area programs in the four major migratory flyways in the Americas, the organization will bring the full power of Audubon to bear on protecting common and threatened bird species and the critical habitat they need to survive. And as part of BirdLife International, Audubon will join people in over 100 in-country organizations all working to protect a network of Important Bird Areas around the world, leveraging the impact of actions they take at a local level. What defines Audubon’s unique value is a powerful grassroots network of nearly 500 local chapters, 23 state offices, 41 Audubon Centers, Important Bird Area Programs in 50 states, and 700 staff across the country. Audubon is a federal contractor and an Equal Opportunity Employer (EOE).
The Field Organizing Associate will be responsible for supporting Field Organizers and volunteers in their work across ten states with Audubon chapters, partners, supporters, and volunteers to accomplish advocacy victories in communities across America. S/He will be highly energetic, adaptable, relationship-oriented, and a results-driven team player who engages field staff as well as national and state stakeholders.
The Field Organizing Associate will help train and build the capacity of Field Organizers, the Audubon network, and volunteer leaders and serve as a vital link in bringing Audubon’s ambitious climate-focused strategic plan to life in communities from coast to coast and in making Audubon the most effective advocacy network in America.
The Field Organizing Associate will also ensure that the Audubon network receives the support it needs to address climate change action at the local, state and national level while creating safe political space and a greater demand for change for climate solutions.
