Work With Us

Leadership Team Overview

ESW-HQ functions primarily because of our core volunteer team. These dedicated individuals manage day-to-day operations, creation and implementation of new programs, and relations with other organizations. While these positions are unpaid, they offer the opportunity to guide an international organization and create change at an overarching level. All positions will require 5-10 hours of work a week, and transportation costs to HQ events will be covered as appropriate. Participation in the Leadership Team offers the opportunity to engage with fiercely passionate people on a national level, work on new ideas across disciplines and sectors, and implement sustainability. If this sounds exciting, we hope you will join us. We encourage applications from women and underrepresented individuals so that our leadership better represents the diversity of the ESW community!

Please note: While we are often looking for volunteers for specific projects or initiatives (as with annual LT recruitment), inquiries about unavailable or non-specific positions may receive a response -- we'll do our best to find a way for you to help!

Our general requirements, regardless of position, are as follows:

  • You need to be a current ESW member, either through a chapter in good standing or an at-large membership. This is easily accomplished at this page
  • You need to be passionate about sustainability, and agree with our mission, vision, and values.
  • You do need to be able to commit time to the organization, including regular conference calls. We find that in order to be effective, most positions require 5-10hrs/week on average, fluctuating by season.
  • Self-motivation is important for the digital environment that we work in. 
  • You don't have to be familiar with ESW-HQ - we're friendly people, and we'd love to meet you. 

Available Positions

2 Chapter Relations Coordinator Positions - Mid-Atlantic & Western/Central New York

Chapter Relations Coordinators (CRCs) are the main connection between chapters and ESW-HQ. They work closely with chapter leaders in a particular geographic region to ensure effective communication and collaboration between chapters, make sure that chapters know about current ESW-HQ initiatives, and help chapters deal with strategic challenges. CRCs work together with the CR Director to ensure the Leadership Team (LT) is well-informed and able to connect with chapters regularly and frequently, and that chapters are receiving all appropriate information and updates from the LT. Becoming a CRC is a natural step for chapter leaders that want to move up a level and help share their knowledge with more schools!
