One Hundred Miles is seeking a Savannah-area-based Education Coordinator who will assist in developing and delivering high-quality education initiatives that increase Georgians’ knowledge of and engagement with our coastal resources in Savannah and across Georgia’s 100-mile coast.

  • Work with the VP of Education and Communications to create educational displays and interpretive tools for outreach and community education
  • Work with the media to promote assigned programs and meet program goals

Volunteer Coordination

  • Recruit volunteers in communities across Chatham, Effingham, McIntosh, and surrounding counties
  • Work with the Brunswick-based Coastal Education Coordinator to develop and implement a training and engagement program for volunteers; work with staff throughout the organization to identify and match volunteers to appropriate opportunities
  • Help to plan an annual volunteer appreciation event and other recognitions throughout the year

We are looking for a talented and driven individual to accelerate our efforts, and the successful candidate must have:

  • At least 3-5 years of formal or nonformal environmental education experience or advocacy education experience
  • Knowledge of current techniques and best practices in the field of nonformal education
  • Proven experience developing, promoting, and teaching interactive programs for a variety of ages and backgrounds
  • Comfortable working as an advocate and publicly advocating for OHM’s conservation positions

  • Excellent writing and communication skills, including the ability to translate complex issues into relatable, easy-to-understand ideas and action opportunities

This position will be based in the Savannah, GA, area (Chatham or surrounding counties).
