As a Director of Rejuvenation Unlimited, you will play a crucial role on the Board of Directors (Board) by supporting the organization with your leadership, financial oversight, strategic governance, and generative thinking abilities. The Board is responsible for ensuring compliance with relevant laws, and works in partnership with the future Executive Director (ED) to achieve the organization's goals. The ED will manage daily operations (and eventually staff), and their position on the Board will be ex officio, granting automatic, non-voting membership during their tenure.

Term Limits

Directors serve in three (3) year terms, for a maximum service time of nine (9) years.

Responsibilities:

Leadership, governance and oversight

  • Act as a fiduciary for the organization.
  • Understand, develop, and approve mission, vision, values, bylaws, and policies.
  • Set high-level goals and evaluate organizational impact.
  • Review and approve budgets, audits, and major decisions.
  • Contribute to the selection and evaluation of the ED and Board.
  • Assist in identifying, recruiting, and onboarding new members.
  • Ensure organization-wide commitment to transparency, diversity, equity, inclusion, justice, and anti-oppression.
Participation
  • Prepare for, attend, and actively engage in Board and committee meetings (held via Zoom/Meet).
  • Serve on at least one standing committee.
  • Engage in ongoing board development and training opportunities.
  • Disclose conflicts of interest and complete an annual re-affirmation statement.
  • Directors who accrue three (3) unexcused absences during a term will be automatically removed from the Board, with the opportunity to appeal.
Personal donation expectation
  • Each Director considers Rejuvenation Unlimited a top priority for their charitable donations.
  • Annual contributions are expected from each Director, proportionate to their capacity to give.
  • There will never be a specific expectation , as Rejuvenation Unlimited aims to remove barriers of participation.

Qualifications:

At Rejuvenation Unlimited, we value diversity and inclusive approaches because we believe that everyone, regardless of their citizenship, residency, education, socioeconomic status, or any other aspect of their being, should have an equal opportunity to apply for any position within our organization. We actively encourage individuals from diverse backgrounds and with various lived experiences to apply and be part of our Board and staff.

This is an extraordinary opportunity for an individual who:

  • Understands the legal responsibilities of the Board.
  • Exhibits strong alignment with the organization's work.
  • Supports efforts that actively challenge societal and sector-specific norms that are rooted in supremacist thinking, systematic dehumanization, oppression, violence, and displacement carried out against marginalized groups.
  • Possesses strategic thinking skills and sound judgment.
  • Demonstrates strong communication skills with a focus on active listening and respectful discussion.
  • Embodies personal qualities of integrity, credibility, and motivation to do good.
  • Understands and respects the differences in scope of work/responsibility between Board and staff.
  • Has leadership experience in business, government, or not-for-profit contexts (preferred).
  • Possesses experience from early-stage nonprofit or business startups (preferred).
  • Has connections that may benefit the organization (preferred).

Mission Statement

Our mission is to work with communities to realize just and sustainable tropical forest landscapes. We envision a world in which tropical forest landscapes are thriving and providing direct benefits to local and global communities. Rejuvenation Unlimited works to channel global support toward rural, tropical, and primarily Indigenous communities in their efforts to guard and rejuvenate forest landscapes. Various communities from around the world work together to engage in real and impactful actions that ensure a future that allows everyone the opportunity to live without fear of climate doom.

Description

Incorporated in 2024. In the process of obtaining 501(c)(3) status.

We are beginning to roll out three scalable programs...

The Ambassador Program recruits and engages a global network of passionate individuals and businesses who share our vision. This program is developing widespread support networks that power our work while generating leads for the Community Project Program.

The Community Project Program will fund and assist community-driven restoration and conservation projects that result in just and sustainable tropical forest landscapes. Each community will identify what they need - agroforestry, forest restoration, clean water infrastructure, off-grid cold storage, payments for ecosystem services, etc. - and we will channel support towards implementation of the projects.

Beginning in 2026, the Sustainable Markets Program will support local smallholders and craftspeople to earn income from sustainable crops and crafts, as well as carbon drawdown.
