Executive Director: Pennsylvania Resources Council


Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to lead and promote individual and collective action to prevent waste and conserve Pennsylvania’s environmental resources for each generation. PRC provides programs or technical assistance in environmental education, recycling, waste diversion, anti-litter campaigns, and more to schools and communities. PRC aspires to be the go-to statewide organization for people, communities, and corporations that want to advance policies and practices grounded in the values of conservation, community, responsibility, inclusion, and environmental justice.

PRC seeks a strategic thinker and experienced fundraiser with an entrepreneurial spirit to be its next Executive Director. The optimal candidate will have experience in managing and developing staff, assessing and taking programs to the next level, and building strategic relationships with diverse partners to scale impact. They will enhance financial controls and work to nurture a “one PRC” culture and cohesion between the Eastern and Western PA offices. The ideal candidate will be energized by and skilled in building relationships with existing and potential funders that can provide flexible, sustainable revenue. Past experience in environmental causes is preferred though not a necessity; a foundational understanding of current environmental issues and an interest in continued learning to become a public champion for PRC’s mission is a must.

Service Area

PRC is a statewide organization headquartered in Pittsburgh (Allegheny County) with an eastern program office in Media (Delaware County). The location of the Executive Director’s office is negotiable. Travel to constituent locations and between offices to provide equitable facetime and focus with both staffs is a necessity. Please note: Given that the location of the Executive Director’s office is negotiable, Idealist includes a separate listing for this opportunity across various cities, however there is only ONE Executive Director position.

About Pennsylvania Resources Council

PRC is the oldest grassroots environmental organization in Pennsylvania. Founded in 1939, PRC has been a champion for natural resource conservation, environmental health, and climate resiliency since long before these issues came to the fore in society’s collective consciousness. Today, PRC organizes its work around two pillars of impact:

  1. Educational Programs. PRC provides informational and practical workshops and trainings to schools, individuals, and communities on topics like recycling, waste reduction, composting, watershed awareness, stormwater management, green stormwater infrastructure, and rain barrel use.
  2. Services and Support. PRC is an industry-standard contracted service provider, technical assistance consultant, and convener for local and county governments and public-private partnerships, supporting waste reduction, large-scale hazardous waste disposal, and recycling. PRC provides technical assistance in Zero Waste events, event greening strategies, and local government recycling program development.

PRC is at a critical juncture. Following the passing of its longtime Executive Director, the collaborative interim leadership by staff and board has identified opportunities to:

  • Raise PRC’s visibility and reposition the organization in a crowded field of environmental organizations, when the confluence of political strife, social movements, and the pandemic have shone a light on the intersections of environmental issues with public health, social justice, and racial equity
  • Work with the Board of Directors, articulate the strategic direction of the organization, inclusive of PRC’s unique value proposition, program and service mix, and revenue model that will advance the mission and support programs on a sustainable basis
