Description

350PDX is building a diverse grassroots movement to help solve the climate crisis. We are volunteer-led, with a 150-person core organized in teams: Arts & Events, Outreach, Communications, Development, Divest/Reinvest, and 6 neighborhood teams. With one foot in politics and one foot in the streets, 350PDX models localized solutions to the climate crisis.

Join the fight for an immediate and just transition away from fossil fuels to a sustainable economy based on 100% renewable energy! We’re looking for two volunteer interns to work on Community and Campaign Organizing, and Development and Fundraising. Please read over the position descriptions and then fill out the Internship Application Form on our website by Tuesday, May 29th, being sure to indicate on the form which position(s) you are applying for:

Internship positions are perfect for college students, recent graduates, or other young people outside the formal education system who are looking to deepen their connection to the climate movement as well as grow their professional and/or activist skills and experience.

There are two options for these internships, each requires a commitment of 260 total hours:

  • Summer Option: 20 hours per week, early or mid-June through August 31st (dates are somewhat flexible)
  • Summer-Fall Option: 10-12 hours per week, early or mid-June through December 31st (dates are somewhat flexible)
