In 2018 SLT created the community programs department to bring our conservation messages and programming to diverse and marginalized communities. Most recently we built a suite of youth programs to create agency and foster a land ethic for the environment and open space. The Land Trust’s programs serve a diverse audience with broad cultural heritages, socioeconomic backgrounds, and genders and orientations. We value staff who reflect and value the audiences and populations we serve.

Position Description
The program assistant is supervised by the bilingual youth programs coordinator and aids the implementation of planned educational activities for youth program participants. The position includes scheduling and facilitating in-person and virtual educational programs as well as supporting youth development activities with participants. Some programs are offered in Spanish, in which case this position will support program delivery by the youth programs coordinator. This position requires both traditional and remote work. While the administration of programs occurs at our downtown Santa Rosa office, the position includes significant time hiking, kayaking, and other outdoor experiences on SLT-protected lands.
