Natural Resources Council of Maine (NRCM)

The Natural Resources Council of Maine (NRCM) is seeking applicants to work as interns to assist the organization on a broad range of environmental policy issues currently facing Maine and the nation.  Interns likely will work remotely through summer 2022.  They may be full-time or less than full-time, depending on needs and availability of the candidate.  Internships generally are unpaid positions, although some stipend funding is available.  Summer 2022 internships generally last from beginning of June through July.

Internship Experience

NRCM provides interns with meaningful work and an excellent training experience. Interns will contribute to and learn from activities such as:

  • Policy Research for legislation dealing with water quality, renewable energy, climate action, habitat conservation, and waste management;
  • Legislative Action (when legislature is in session) including attending legislative hearings, meeting lawmakers, watching policy debates, and mobilizing activists; and
  • Advocacy Strategy including attending internal NRCM policy meetings, coalition strategy sessions, and advocacy events.

Environmental policy interns work under the supervision of NRCM’s Advocacy Director, Pete Didisheim (Williams ’81) who works to ensure that interns receive extensive opportunities to witness internal operations of NRCM and the environmental policy process.


Applicants should have strong writing and communication skills, a strong interest in environmental policy, and ability to work on multiple projects with varying deadlines.

Candidates may apply at any time. Resume and cover letter should be submitted to [email protected].
