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.

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.

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.
