Description

This is very much a “people” job. Help protect Montana’s water quality, family farms and ranches, & unique quality of life. Work hard, meet good people, make the world a better place!

Each of our organizers works with Northern Plains’ grassroots membership as a whole, with our local affiliates (mostly in small, rural communities), and with our issue task forces to further the mission of Northern Plains. As a Northern Plains organizer, you won’t be tied to a desk, you’ll meet lots of people, and you’ll make change happen at the grassroots level.

Northern Plains is watching the COVID pandemic and Delta variant closely and setting our organizing expectations accordingly. In order to keep our staff and members safe, Community Organizers must be able to organize remotely if needed. This requires having access to reliable internet from your home, convening and attending virtual meetings, conducting phone calls, and deploying creative problem solving.

During non-pandemic times, overnight travel averages perhaps 2-3 times a month for this position.
