Climate Resolve is seeking an intern in summer 2018, with a special focus on climate communications and social media.

The intern will receive a unique opportunity to be a part of a nonprofit organization working on climate action in Southern California. Interns will receive an immersive look at Climate Resolve’s work in policy, advocacy, and especially communications.

As a communications intern, responsibilities include:

  • Provide support in the production and distribution of social media and email communications. Support Climate Resolve in establishing a strategy to increase and segment Climate Resolve’s email list.
  • Help develop “earned media” opportunities, by building media lists and working with the Communications Manager on press-related matters.
  • Execute design and copy for website pages and email blasts. Implement HTML coding when necessary for homepage features and email blasts.
  • Monitor news outlets and social media for relevant and topical news pertinent to Climate Resolve’s work internally and externally.
  • Collaborate with the Communications Manager in the development of photo and video materials that support campaign goals and/or grow and engage our online audiences.
  • Draft correspondence, copy edit and proofread materials as requested.
  • Other duties as assigned.


  • Experience with WordPress, MailChimp, Twitter/HootSuite, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and Google Suite.
  • Able to work in a team environment as well as one-on-one. Able to handle multiple projects simultaneously while meeting deadlines. Excellent attention to detail.
  • Design and photography skills a major plus.

Intern schedules can be flexible, but must be 3-4 days a week, 10 am - 4 pm, at our office in the Arts District in Downtown LA. We offer a $100/week stipend and school credit. Position is ideal for a current student or recent graduate, but we don’t discriminate based on age (or anything else).

Climate Resolve is a Los Angeles-based 501(c)(3) tax-deductible nonprofit organization, founded in 2010, that focuses on local solutions to global climate change. We work to make California more equitable, just, livable, prosperous, and sustainable today and for generations to come by inspiring people at home, at work, and in government to reduce climate pollution as well as prepare for climate impacts.
