Manager of RETREET – Dallas or Major Metro
Keep America Beautiful (“KAB”), the nation’s largest community improvement nonprofit, inspires and educates people to act every day to improve their environment. For more than 65 years, KAB has worked to end littering, improve recycling, and beautify America’s communities. KAB contributes to the health and well-being of communities through the work and passion of nearly 700 KAB affiliates nationwide, millions of volunteers and the collaborative support of our corporate partners, social and civic service organizations, academia, municipalities, elected officials, and individuals. Our methodology is informed by a science-backed consumer behavior model for change that has proven effective in delivering results that beautify and unify communities to transform the nation. We believe that everyone deserves a clean, green, and beautiful place to live.
Our RETREET program redefines disaster relief by engaging communities to replant lost trees. From 2011-2020, RETREET was a standalone nonprofit based out of Dallas, TX, during which the organization planted nearly 6,000 trees at home sites across North America, bringing joy, hope, and a renewed sense of environmental identity to families deep within the recovery process.
On January 1, 2021, RETREET and KAB merged into a single organization and RETREET became the flagship program of KAB’s new GREEN strategic priority, a major part of our community restoration and resiliency strategic pillar. Together, we will tackle the growing need to replant trees after disaster strikes. More can be learned about the program at www.retreet.org and www.kab.org/programs/retreet.
We seek an exceptional program manager to join our team and work directly with the founder of RETREET to bring this unique program to scale across our vast and growing affiliate network in the years to come. There is no other program like RETREET in the world, and this is an incredible opportunity for a similarly distinctive individual.
