      New Yorkers can breathe easier, thanks to an innovative outreach campaign launched in 2007 by ICF International on behalf of the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT). According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the New York metropolitan area (including NYC, Long Island and the Hudson Valley) fails to meet federal ambient air quality standards for ground-level ozone and particulate matter pollution. To improve the air, NYSDOT has committed to reducing vehicle miles traveled by 1% through a public outreach campaign. ICF is proud to be supporting NYSDOT in this ground-breaking effort to use public relations and advertising to effect environmental change.
      Late in 2006 and early 2007, ICF revamped and rebranded NYSDOT’s existing Ozone NY program to become Clean Air NY– building a dynamic network of more than 3,000 individuals, and more than 4,000 employer and community partners committed to improving air quality through carpooling, using mass transit, combining errands, and other positive transportation-related actions.
      On the ground, the campaign has been led by ICF’s local Marketing & Outreach Manager with help from 3 regional subcontractors/transportation management organizations (MetroPool, CommuterLink & LITM) and has gained enough momentum to demand a 2nd local position in the NY metro region, to help take the project and campaign to the next level.
      ICF is looking to take the Clean Air NY campaign to the next level in 2008 and needs to expand its team on the ground in New York to do so. The Clean Air NY – Marketing Associate will support the Marketing & Outreach Manager in growing the network of businesses, community groups and individuals in the program. The program requires frequent follow up with partners, in addition to detailed tracking of participation. The Marketing Associate will lead the planning & execution of Clean Air NY’s consumer/community events and individual outreach campaign, with input from the Marketing & Outreach Manager and the team and will require staffing on some weekends in the Spring & Summer. Additionally, the Marketing Associate will assist in launching a new effort to recruit colleges and universities to a Clean Air Campus component of the campaign.
      The ideal candidate will have a Bachelor’s degree and at least 3+ years of relevant experience in business and/or community outreach campaigns and programs TDM programs. Experience in business outreach, and program elements such as carpool and vanpool programs, incentive and marketing programs, emergency ride home programs, as well as transit subsidy and benefits programs is desired. The ability to manage partnerships with businesses, and local organizations is desired. The position may also involve support to ICF’s other communications, voluntary programs, and transportation projects, as well as business development. The position will require frequent travel in the NY metro region and may require some limited travel outside of the NY metro region.

      About the Organization
      Bikes Not Bombs (BNB) began in 1984 as a campaign in support of the people of Nicaragua, and in opposition to the U.S. military intervention there. To date, we have shipped over 30,000 donated bicycles to projects in the Global South, where they are fixed and sold to provide capital to establish bicycle shops, create permanent jobs, provide people with affordable means of sustainable transportation, and support youth development programs, disabled people’s organizing campaigns and appropriate technology centers. In Boston, BNB runs a integrated set of youth development programs that teach young people to build, maintain, and safely ride bikes, while developing critical thinking and leadership skills, and an understanding of social justice issues. BNB also operates a full-service bike shop. The shop houses an advanced vocational training program and repairs customer bikes, and sells completely refurbished used bikes. BNB advocates for alternative transportation and creates opportunities for adults and youth to interact in a positive, multi-racial peace-building environment.
