Environmental Traveling Companions (ETC) is a San Francisco-based nonprofit that is dedicated to opening access to educational and transformational outdoor adventures for youth and people with disabilities of all ages.

ETC is a pioneering nonprofit—the first in the nation to create accessible river rafting adventures for people with disabilities—and is recognized as a national model of inclusive outdoor adventure. Since its founding, ETC has opened access to adventure to more than 90,000 people with disabilities and underserved youth, engaged a dedicated cadre of over 300 volunteers and partnerships with 90 agencies and schools. Every year, more than 3,500 people join ETC to raft whitewater rivers, ski alpine meadows, kayak the waters of the Golden Gate and Tomales Bay, and build leadership skills.

The Development Director directly reports to Diane Poslosky, ETC’s Executive Director of more than 3 decades. Diane is a passionate outdoor leader and environmental educator with a career-long dedication to creating inclusive outdoor communities that cherish and work to protect our planet. She has been awarded the prestigious Jefferson Award for Service; and under her leadership ETC has received the Dewitt Award for Partnership from the California Department of Parks and Recreation.
