Do you want to fight global warming while gaining valuable grassroots organizing knowledge and experience? If yes, then Chesapeake Climate Action Network has the perfect internship for you. We are currently hiring a team of interns for the fall of 2013. Whether you're new to organizing or looking to hone your skills, CCAN's fall organizing internships offer valuable experience to learn more and challenge yourself as a climate campaigner.
For ten years, CCAN has been working in Maryland, Virginia, and DC to fight climate change by standing up to polluters and working to pass clean energy policies. This fall, we are working on several fronts to reduce and prevent climate pollution. In Virginia, we are working to bring wind and solar power to the commonwealth by overcoming Dominion Power's hold on our energy policy, stop dirty energy like offshore oil drilling, and highlight Virginia's unique vulnerability to climate consequences such as the impact of sea level rise on Hampton Roads. In Maryland, we are building a statewide movement to take on the gas industry and put strong protections in place from the dangerous impacts of fracking.
We have two offices: one in Richmond, VA and one in Takoma Park, MD-- just 2 blocks from the red-line metro. If you are unable to commute to either locations, we offer limited opportunities to work from your campus or community.
20 hours/week for 10 weeks, preferred. Minimum of 15 hours/week for 8 weeks. All CCAN internships are unpaid. Academic credit is available where applicable.
Please fill out this internship application and attach a one-page resume detailing your relevant experience. Supplemental writing samples in the form of letters to the editor, blogs or other advocacy documents are encouraged. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
