Waterfront Ambassadors Assistant Program Manager

The Trustees Waterfront Ambassadors is a targeted program based in East Boston focusing on engaging the local community on waterfront issues that connect to the Trustees’ One Waterfront Initiative. This year’s seven-week program will allow ten youth the opportunity to learn about the mission of The Trustees as well as the Boston Waterfront Initiative, and how it relates to their neighborhood and community. The program will feature increased opportunities for the Trustees Waterfront Ambassadors to meet staff from government agencies and other local open space- and harbor-focused non-profits to learn more about the work being done in East Boston and across the city on waterfront issues such as climate resilience, public access, and regulatory structures. The Trustees Waterfront Ambassadors will also work with key East Boston grassroots and non-profit partners, lending a hand with local cleanups and stewardship projects while also learning about the work of these grassroots organizations with whom the Boston Waterfront Initiative collaborates.
