World Forestry Center, a non-profit organization located in Portland’s Washington Park, seeks an Experience Coordinator to support the organization’s public programming. For over half a century, World Forestry Center has been at the intersection of people and forestry. Our mission – to create and inspire champions of sustainable forestry – is centered on people. Our focus is not on forests alone, but rather on how people think, act, and relate to them.
We are working to calibrate all our programs and exhibits to inspire the broad social action needed to drive sustainable forestry solutions at a meaningful scale. We aim to change how society understands and interacts with our forests. This work will require engagement and trust, built through in-person and virtual programs and immersive, emotionally compelling exhibits that move the public from understanding to action.
We are in the early stages of implementing our long-term strategy to transform our organization, our programs, and our campus. As we work to calibrate our programs and exhibits to our new vision for the future, we are seeking an experienced and versatile professional to join our programs team.
A successful candidate should possess drive, flexibility, a thirst for collaboration, and a skill set for managing multiple programs simultaneously. This role requires a combination of strategic thinking, project management, and hands-on execution. We are looking for a self-motivated individual who enjoys developing, coordinating, and delivering educational programming to public audiences. This position will support the Experience Director in the day-to-day management of public programs and work closely with professional programs, facilities, events, communications, and development staff.
