Internship posted by: City Parks Foundation
Posted on: August 20, 2013
The Natural Areas Conservancy was founded in 2012 to advance the restoration and conservation of green and blue places for a resilient and livable New York City. We work in partnership with the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation toward the management of the City's 10,000 acres of forests, wetlands, and grasslands. Since 2012, we have received more than $4.5 million, including generous support from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, Tiffany & Co. Foundation, and the Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City. The Natural Areas Conservancy supplements public spending by receiving private donations, enabling the hiring of additional expert staff and use of advanced technology, and brings resources to parkland in all five boroughs of NYC.
As a young organization, the Natural Areas Conservancy is seeking an intern to help us to establish a media presence, lead our social media efforts and generate web content. We want to increase our profile in print, radio, television, and web-based media. Our audience includes potential funders, conservationists, policy makers, and the general public. The intern will assist our staff with external writing and strategic communications assignments. This is an exciting opportunity for someone interested in non-profit communications, journalism or social media. The communications intern will have the opportunity to help shape the voice of the Natural Areas Conservancy, and to work on a variety of projects.
To apply, please submit a cover letter, resume, and three writing samples to:
