Depave is Soliciting Applications for Board Positions!
Depave is a unique nonprofit organization based in Portland. Our mission is to help communities and the environment by removing unnecessary pavement from urban areas. We transform asphalt lots into gardens, green spaces, bioswales, and playgrounds. We plan and lead hands-on community depaving projects with/for willing landowners (often schools and faith communities) and we work on education and policy projects related to reducing pavement in other ways. Depave was has done over 40 sites freeing over 120,000 square feet of soil since 2008, and currently has a staff of 1.5 FTE.
Now is an exciting time in Depave’s development, and we are looking for new board members to help with the organization’s next steps. Board members get to develop and/or exercise their leadership skills, think strategically and long-term, and work with others to make this region – and the world – a better place. Our work is inspiring and a lot of fun.
