We host interns and they get a great experience working with one of the top state-based environmental organizations in the country. We draw many interns from Colby, Bates, and Bowdoin. I would be glad to consider a Williams intern as an applicant. Here’s a basic description. Feel free to have applicants contact me directly.
Internships at the Natural Resources Council of Maine
The Natural Resources Council of Maine (NRCM) provides unpaid internship opportunities throughout the year. NRCM is the state’s leading environmental advocacy organization. We have a broad range of major initiatives underway in the areas of addressing global warming, promoting renewable energy and energy efficiency, curbing threats to Maine’s North Woods, reducing threats from toxic pollution, and protecting water quality and Maine’s rivers.
Interns work on one or more meaningful projects in these issue areas, depending on the candidate’s strengths and interests and NRCM’s organizational needs. Interns work under the supervision of the Advocacy Director or one of the Project Directors. Interns get an inside view of how the environmental policy process in Maine works, and how NRCM mobilizes facts, media attention, decision-makers, and the public to contribute to the protection of Maine’s environment. Prior interns have had a great experience, and NRCM appreciates having them.
