organization:Gifford Pinchot Task Force
position summary:

We need energetic, idealistic people with strong communication skills, a proven work ethic, a passion for forest issues, and a desire to work collaboratively to represent us door-to-door and on street corners in the Portland metro area. You must be outgoing with a willingness to engage people and be able to fearlessly and professionally represent our organization.

Our Membership Outreach Team’s focus is to raise funds, inspire potential activists, and recruit members and volunteers for the Gifford Pinchot Task Force.

Our team is different, relying on sincere, passionate communication rather than gimmicky sales techniques and high-pressure tactics to engage and inspire, rather than pressure, the public to support our organization. We believe in collaboration and rewarding hard work, rather than the fear-based management that is too common in canvassing. In a time when many organizations are struggling with fundraising, our team grew our monthly donor program by 65% in 2009 and exceeded all of our fundraising goals.

Flexible schedule, 18-30 hrs per week, weekends or evenings required. Ideal for students. $10-11/hour to start, plus generous bonuses. We offer ten paid holidays per year and paid time off after 6 months of employment. Schedule is 3:00 pm to 9:30 pm, Mon-Fri. for door-to-door and 10 am -4:30 pm for street. Must be available for at least 4 full shifts per week.
