Inspire Program Associate 

The Solutions Project is hiring a Program Associate to support the development and execution of events and experiences advancing clean energy for all.

About Solutions Project

Right now, everything in our lives could be powered by clean, renewable energy.  From our homes and smart phones to the electricity running our local grocery store, clean energy is not only possible – it’s already happening.  Solutions Project is accelerating the transition to 100% clean energy by making the movement more inclusive, more collaborative, and more celebratory.  Through storytelling, grantmaking, and capacity building, we honor clean energy leaders, invest in promising solutions, and build relationships between unlikely allies.  Together, we can make renewable energy a reality for everyone – 100% for 100%.

Guiding Principles

  • Be bold. We are aspirational, creative and always active.
  • Be inclusive.  We shine the light and invite everyone we can onto the path to 100%.
  • Duplicate nothing. We must leverage and strengthen the field — connecting dots, amplifying, influencing, and resourcing other organizations, as needed.
  • Support equity. We encourage equity-rooted strategies, working to ensure that everyone has access to affordable clean energy, impacted communities benefit directly from a clean energy transition, and diverse leadership is central in the overall movement’s call for 100%.

Core Values

  • Be celebratory, collaborative, and inclusive.
