A Greener Future is an environmental nonprofit that focuses on litter cleanup, prevention, and education. We organize initiatives that involve and educate citizens in order to minimize environmental destruction caused by waste and litter. To date, A Greener Future has picked up over 1 million pieces of litter with the help of volunteers. We collect data related to the items we pick up in order to determine the best solutions for the most common types of litter found. Our litter cleanups are based on zero waste principles which means a majority of what we pick up is recycled or composted instead of being sent to the landfill. We are looking for a forward thinking fundraising professional who is passionate about the environment and is interested in helping solve a challenging issue. This internship has the opportunity to turn into summer employment or a permanent position if you're the right fit for our team.

You will work alongside our Executive Director to assist in program development, organization advocacy, and building connections within the local community to help raise funding for our operations and programming. Currently, we rely on grant funding, online sales from our zero waste shop, and the sale of zero waste items at Farmer’s Market booths across Ontario.
