More About this Role: 

Neighborhood Coordinators (NCs) are a special role for those who love to work behind-the-scenes. If you’re looking to connect with your neighbors and make a lasting impact in your neighborhood, the Neighborhood Coordinator might be the perfect fit for you!

Neighborhood Coordinators are absolutely critical to the mission and success of Friends of Trees. Each NC works closely with a staff member to help answer questions from tree purchasers, create outreach strategies, and organize the annual neighborhood planting day.  The most important piece of the equation is the willingness to communicate with your neighbors, get excited about having more trees in your neighborhoods — and, of course, have fun doing it!
