At the Climate Reality Project, we come to work every day to help solve the climate crisis. We do it by working from the ground up, empowering people and communities worldwide to fight for their future and together drive a just transition to clean energy.

We are committed to building a more just and equitable world, one where all voices are heard and respected regardless of race, religion, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, or physical ability. We encourage you to read our DEIJ Statement on our website

Internship Program: The goal of our internship program is to provide a high-quality learning experience that helps to form the foundation for a diverse group of individuals who might choose a career in the climate change or environmental movement and to provide hands-on work experience. 

We offer paid internships in three cycles (spring, summer, fall) that align to typical college semesters. Each cycle runs for approximately 10-12 weeks. We ask for a 15-20 hour minimum commitment per week. The internship opportunities are in a variety of programs and departments that will vary from cycle to cycle. Every Climate Reality intern is assigned an intern mentor who works closely with them to help them navigate the organization, create overall objectives and to oversee their work plan 

Interns will be paid $15 per hour and will be provided a Climate Reality laptop to use during their internship.

Our DC office is closed due to COVID. Therefore, we will accept remote interns who work/reside in the following states for the Spring 2021 cycle: CA; CO; DC; FL; IL; MA; MD; ME; NC; NY; OR; PA; TN
