Organization: Compost Education Centre
Location: Victoria BC (virtual – located in or familiarity with the City of Victoria or surrounding municipalities an asset)
Type: board of directors / volunteer

The Compost Education Centre is seeking skilled leaders and innovators to serve on its Board of Directors!

Who we are:

The Compost Education Centre (CEC) is a project of the Victoria Compost and Conservation Education Society, a not-for-profit, charitable organization. Since 1992, the CEC has provided in-school and community-centred educational programs for people of all ages throughout Greater Victoria and our Capital Regional District (CRD). The CEC is mandated to provide practical, hands-on education around composting, waste diversion, soil conservation and environmental stewardship, while also promoting organic and ecological gardening practices. These efforts contribute to reducing landfill waste and reducing the health and environmental effects of chemical gardening practices, both of which can be harmful to natural systems, as well as promoting the environmental and social benefits of local food production.

Why apply?

Volunteering with a charitable non-profit org provides practical, professional, transferable skills. It's also a way to meet community-minded folks from other professions and disciplines who share a passion for composting, waste reduction, ecological conservation, and food justice.

Ideal candidates will share our passion for composting, ecological conservation, and food justice. This is a volunteer position with a commitment of 4-8 hours a month. Experience in non-profits, accounting, team and/or project management, fundraising, leadership, HR or related fields is an asset.

Number of open positions: 3

Benefits of participating:

  • Build experience in not-for-profit and charity work
  • Connect & collaborate with a dedicated team that is passionate about waste reduction, soil conservation and local food production, as well as the intersections between food, land, and environmental justice; training and leadership development opportunities (soil conservation and composting, team building, social enterprise development, event coordination, sustainable living skills)
  • Contribute to your community and to the wellbeing of local ecosystems and the broader environment.
