RAY Program Manager

The Roger Arliner Young (RAY) Fellowship Program aims to increase and facilitate conservation, clean energy efficiency, and renewable energy-related career pathways for emerging leaders of color. The RAY Fellowship is a two-year paid Fellowship designed to equip recent college graduates with the tools, experiences, support, and community they need to become leaders in the conservation and clean energy sectors—one that, in our visions of the future, fully represents, includes, and is led by the diverse communities, perspectives, and experiences of the United States.

RAY is managed by the Environmental Leadership Program (ELP), whose mission is to support visionary, action-oriented, and diverse leadership for a just and sustainable future. ELP aims to catalyze change by providing emerging leaders with the support and guidance they need to launch new endeavors, achieve new successes, and rise to new leadership positions. Since 2000, we have created a dynamic network of over 1,400 environmental and social change leaders across the U.S.


The RAY Program Manager will support other program managers delivering monthly IDEAL (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Access, Liberation) training. The manager is also responsible for grant prospecting, developing partnership models to grow the RAY Fellowship, and collaborating with the RAY team to implement program strategy.

The Programs Manager is a mid-level position reporting directly to the Director of the RAY Fellowship Program. The successful candidate will revise their work on short and long-term timelines; bring a commitment to continuous improvement and a culture of learning, care; and support of the RAY Fellowship team by managing all marketing and communications work.
