This is where we want you, adult with revenue generation skills, to come in and help us get better – bringing your unique experience and having a tangible role in furthering our mission.

Due to its commitment to open-access programs, ensuring youth in traditionally marginalized and most vulnerable communities have access without financial burden, H2OO’s operations have run exceptionally lean for the last 6 years with just two full time staff members, one of which is 100% volunteer, as the vast majority of funding to date has been dedicated to programming. H2OO must now commit to growing capacity to scale its programs and serve adequately more youth. H2OO is seeking a knowledgeable Director of Revenue Mobilization to join its team as the inaugural fundraising lead -- focusing on major donor, corporate and institutional support -- while remaining true to H2OO’s mission and vision supporting the next generation.
