Principal Officer

Mr. Dorsey Moore

BIO

Dorsey Moore, a 20-year Conservation Corps veteran who began as Executive Director in July of 2014. Dorsey’s life passion is creating sustainable communities for all. For the last two decades he has worked in the nonprofit, business and government sectors making local communities more sustainable places to live, work and play. Dorsey has two life missions: 1) 'empowering people to live lives of freedom and full self-expression' and 2) 'everyone makes it.’ He believes that no one can truly be free unless everyone is free. He believes that we will not be able to self-actualize as a community, nation or planet unless everyone is given equal opportunity and support to contribute their gifts to the world. In this way, everyone’s salvation is tied together.

Dorsey has a special talent for identifying the greatness in each person and encouraging people to be present to their gifts. He is working with the leadership team to co-create a new SJCC&CS organizational culture that is open, honest, collaborative, transparent, supportive, experiential, positive, fun and operates with integrity in everything it does.
