Greenbelt Alliance addresses a single challenge: how the Bay Area handles growth. We are the only Bay Area organization that holistically addresses land-use issues across our region—from land conservation to smart growth development.
Join our team to help us create a Bay Area where the natural and agricultural lands that provide so much to our region are protected and where everyone can live in a thriving neighborhood that they are proud to call home.

ICA Corporate Work Study Program
Since 2018, Greenbelt Alliance has been a sponsor of the ICA Cristo Rey’s high school Corporate Work Study Program. We’ve had the opportunity to have 3 students from the all-girls Catholic school assist the organization with various clerical tasks in our San Francisco office.
ICA empowers young women from underserved communities by preparing them for college through a rigorous college preparatory curriculum and its unique corporate work study program. As early as the age of fourteen, young women at ICA are granted entry level job opportunities in various industries, including healthcare, education, nonprofit, and law. We have been fortunate to work with some of these women, whose experiences we’re sharing with you below!
Just as Greenbelt Alliance works to create a better Bay Area, we also strive to better ourselves as an organization. To guide that continued improvement our staff and Board of Directors identified and adopted the following values. They reflect who we are as an organization, what we search for in our team members, and the internal standard we use to measure our work.
Advance Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
Reflect the complete spectrum of Bay Area residents, ensure equitable processes, and prioritize marginalized and underrepresented communities.
Break down silos, amplify strengths, and support individual and organizational growth.
Encourage an environment where it is safe to express your opinions, bravely engage new ideas, and take smart, calculated risks.
Communicate with Depth and Positivity
Clearly communicate expectations, listen carefully, and always assume best intent.
Recognize, understand, and appreciate the unique perspective and shared humanity of others.
Honor your commitments to yourself and your team, and accept the vulnerability of admitting when you cannot.
Foster a culture of trust by sharing information, decision-making strategies, and compensation ranges at all levels.
Channel the inherent joy of doing work you believe in towards creating a positive environment.
