The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with The Alaska Center and The Alaska Center Education Fund in the search for an Executive Director.

Reporting jointly to the Board of Directors of The Alaska Center and the Board of Directors of The Alaska Center Education Fund, the Executive Director will utilize a collaborative and strategic approach to manage a talented team of staff, partner with dedicated Board members, collaborate with community partners, and engage policy makers in building a movement of engaged Alaskans who support a sustainable environment, healthy communities, and a strong democracy. The Alaska Center and The Alaska Center Foundation are located in Anchorage, Alaska. Remote, flexible, and hybrid working arrangements will be considered.

The Alaska Center and The Alaska Center Education Fund work together toward a vision of a thriving, just, and sustainable Alaska, deeply rooted in a love for the State—endeavoring to form coalitions with diverse and underrepresented organizations. Alaskans are engaged and empowered to protect and conserve the natural resources that support their unique quality of life for current and future generations.

The Alaska Center, a 501(c)(4), works tirelessly to engage, empower, and elect Alaskans to stand up for clean air and water, healthy communities, and a strong democracy. The Center is active in protecting wild salmon, advancing and advocating for clean energy and climate action, and supporting diverse leaders who champion the Center’s values at every level of government.

The Alaska Center Education Fund, a 501(c)(3), works to ensure Alaskans are knowledgeable and have a voice in the decisions impacting their future by educating and engaging people of all ages to support clean air and water, healthy communities, and to become empowered stewards. Youth are introduced to the outdoors and are offered education about the natural world through Trailside Discovery Camp. Hundreds of teens are taught how to be effective advocates through the Alaska Youth for Environmental Action program. Alaskans are informed and activated through education and direct advocacy around common-sense voter reforms. Through these efforts, the Alaska Center Education Fund is making a powerful impact on preserving a healthy democracy and conserving Alaska’s natural resources.

Together, The Alaska Center and The Alaska Center Education Fund are building an engaged movement of Alaskans—the State's best asset for combating climate change and preserving environmental integrity. The Center and Fund have an incredible team committed to justice and equity within their organizations and throughout their work. They have strong partnerships throughout the movement for social and environmental change in Alaska—working to make their home the best place to live. The future depends upon the health of the resources that sustain Alaska’s diverse cultures, livelihoods, and families. Together, The Center and Fund ensure that everyone can enjoy Alaska’s tremendous natural resources and grow and cultivate leaders who champion values supporting a vibrant future for generations to come.
