David Corsar

EcoLeaders Career Center Manager
Headquarters // Reston, VA

David Corsar brings to his role as the National Wildlife Federation's EcoLeaders Career Center Manager approximately 10 years of experience in environmental engineering, project management, community and organizational development, and youth empowerment. Most recently, David completed a full two-year Peace Corps service in the Republic of Armenia where he focused on individual professional development for project managers in local community-based NGOs, support for gender equality and women’s empowerment organizations, and development of leadership potential and awareness of contemporary issues such as environmental protection, gender equality, and human rights in teenagers and young adults. Prior to his Peace Corps service, David worked as a project manager and environmental engineer at a global engineering consulting firm, CDM Smith, where every year he persuaded the coworkers in his small office to jump into the Atlantic Ocean in the middle of winter to raise money for Special Olympics’ annual Polar Plunge and to pick up trash in the hot, summer sun as part of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s annual Clean the Bay Day. He also served on the Virginia State Committee of Water For People, where he developed an interest in nonprofit administration. David is an alumnus of Old Dominion University (Bachelor of Science and Master of Engineering in Environmental Engineering) and George Mason University (Master of Public Administration). He’s an avid hiker and trail runner and cannot resist the draw of a volleyball court, whether indoors or on the beach.
