We are seeking creative, collaborative, talented volunteers to help build, deepen and mature our board. We are particularly seeking folks with nonprofit leadership experience and strategic planning or financial expertise who are willing to join the board leadership team in January 2019. Cedar River Montessori School fosters the innate curiosity of the child, presenting learning experiences that cultivate independent, creative thinkers who continuously build their understanding of themselves and the world around them. Located on 12 acres of forested wetland and pasture, Cedar River Montessori is an independent, nonprofit Montessori school for students ages 3 through middle school in Renton. Cedar River Montessori students follow their natural interests as they explore their world, discovering the interconnectedness of personal responsibility, environmental stewardship, and social equity. Students learn how to work independently and collaboratively, experiencing a transformative education as they grow into the next generation of engaged, global thinkers who compassionately challenge the status quo. Founded in 1981, we strive to be a diverse and inclusive community. Preferred areas of expertise and passion: previous board/leadership experience with an interest in leading and supporting board maturation, nonprofit management or finance, environmental/outdoor education, Montessori education or experience. Terms begin by January 2019 and run for three years, with an estimated volunteer commitment of 5 hours/month.
