About Us
Mission: 

Rural Action is a membership-based nonprofit working in the southeast and central eastern counties of Appalachian Ohio since 1991. Our mission is to build a more just economy by developing the region’s assets in environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable ways.

Programs: 

Our core work centers on:

  • Helping small communities do big things
  • Growing local businesses and jobs
  • Restoring our environment
  • Cultivating the next generation of leaders
Why Work For Us?: 

Rural Action has a network of over 600 members throughout Appalachian Ohio. The organization is governed by a Board from across southeast Ohio, with strong private sector involvement. The Board oversees a CEO who manages a staff of 22 full-time equivalent staff and 31 AmeriCorps members through the Corporation for National and Community Service. Rural Action members are involved as volunteers, participants, decision makers, and project designers. Our vital member base guides our sustainable development work in Appalachian Ohio through personal and civic action.
