Steve Dubiel, EarthCorps’ Executive Director, is our fifth Pass-it-Forward honoree. He has been passed this honor by Warren Moon because of “his dedication and commitment to sustainability, community and caretaking the earth.”
Steve joined EarthCorps in 1999 after a stint at Children’s Defense Fund in Washington, DC. Steve has diverse nonprofit management experience including work with outdoor education programs and youth-based social service agencies. Under Steve’s tenure, EarthCorps expanded corps programming, developed youth programs, and launched its volunteer program through dozens of partnerships with government, nonprofits, and businesses. Steve is an MBA and serves on the board of The Corps Network. He is a past board member with EarthShare Washington, Environmental Education Association of Washington, and Mount Baker Community Club. Steve is a past member of the Washington State Community Forestry Council, a graduate of Leadership Tomorrow, and a graduate of the Executive Nonprofit Leadership Institute at University of Washington’s Nancy Bell Evans Center on Nonprofits & Philanthropy.
The organization Steve recognizes with a $1,000 donation from Sustainable Path Foundation is The Mountaineers. “Specifically, I’d like to honor the work Martinique Grigg, their Executive Director, is doing to provide a connection to the outdoors among youth.”
Steve passes it forward to Aberto Rodriguez. Alberto is an EarthCorps alumnus who interned with People for Puget Sound and then Duwamish River Clean up where he now serves on their staff managing outreach, events, and volunteers. Alberto is a native Spanish speaker who grew up in Honduras and has been working on marine issues focused on Puget Sound in recent years.
