While a degree in accounting, non-profit management, business management, international affairs, communications, or other related educational background is desirable, we are open to substituting experience and passion for education.   However, the candidate must philosophically understand the importance of achieving higher education.  Past volunteer experience with a youth conservation corps is welcome.
