The Secret Lantern Society is a vibrant social-profit organization that brings diverse communities together to celebrate beauty, culture and illumination through our annual Winter Solstice Lantern Festival (now in its 23rd year) and diverse events throughout the year. We support our work through lantern rentals, the creation of custom lanterns and décor, workshops, partnerships and government grants. Artistry, multicultural collaboration, community engagement, and environmentalism are central to our grassroots creativity.

The Office Manager will assist in development of a business structure for our revenue generating initiatives and will augment current grant-writing and reporting practices.
