Program Lead & Course Facilitator


Turning Green is a global, student-led movement devoted to education and advocacy around environmentally sustainable and socially responsible choices for individuals, schools, and communities.

Candidates should have experience with remote learning platforms, commitment to environmental and social justice, and track record of working effectively with diverse student groups.
