Green Jobs workforce promotion project manager — (part-time)

Job Description
The Green Jobs workforce promotion project manager will identify forest industry career training opportunities and career pathways and promote them to young adults (high school, career technical education – CTE, home-schooled, and non-traditional school students) and adults (veterans, new Americans, and reformed Dept. of Corrections residents). Promotion includes presenting forest industry/green job career information in schools to school counselors, educators, and students. Promotion also includes assisting and participating in career field days, and teacher tours, and connecting schools with local businesses and forestland owners willing to host tours and internships. The project manager will work closely with the NHTOA staff and partner organizations and draw from the NH Project Learning Tree’s (NHPLT) Green Jobs curriculum.


The project manager will use feedback from school counselors, educators, students, and the forest industry to identify and create forest industry micro-credential programs (aka “Industry Recognized Credential”). They will also serve as a conduit and clearinghouse for apprenticeship, on-the-job training, and career opportunities to schools and CTE centers.

The project will focus on schools, CTE centers, and non-traditional students in Coös, northern Carroll, and northern Grafton counties, with work in the rest of the state occurring as time permits. Although the position is based out of the NHTOA’s office in Concord, N.H., this position will require statewide travel and working remotely is an option.

The project manager will work closely with the NHTOA, NHPLT, and other collaborators on this project. The project manager will report to the NHTOA Executive Director.
