Environment America is a federation of 29 state-based groups with nearly 100 professional staff and more than 1 million members, activists and allies across the country who believe there’s something special about our country — and so much worth protecting and preserving for future generations. Each year they employ interns and hire graduating seniors with the passion, the commitment and the talent it takes to stand up to polluting industries, fight for a green future and do what it takes to win.
What do interns with Environment America do? You’ll help educate and engage more students and citizens on the most critical environmental issues of our time. You’ll help get important issues into the media, build coalitions, organize events and lobby decision-makers. Ultimately, you’ll help build the kind of public support it takes to win the battle to protect our environment. If you care about the environment and want to make a difference, apply to be an Environment America intern today.
Our Fellowship Program for college graduates is a two-year crash course in the nuts and bolts of environmental activism, organizing, advocacy and the type of institution-building that can sustain long-term battles. As a fellow, you’re not just learning how to make an impact; you’re making one. If you want to hear more straight from their current fellows, they put together a short video for you. You’ll find it on their website here.
After two years as a fellow, you’ll have learned the ropes, gained invaluable hands-on experience and you’ll have made a real difference for the environment. Hear from two former fellows about the work they’re doing now to fight fracking here.

The Leadership Development Internship Program at the Middle East Institute is designed to provide students or recent graduates considering a career in a Middle East related field with hands-on experi- ence in a Washington-based, nonprofit organization that focuses exclusively on the Middle East.

The Middle East Institute offers an array of internship opportunities to engage with a wide cross-section of professional interests and talents. Their Publications interns, for instance, work alongside the Managing Editor to produce The Middle East Journal — the oldest, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to Middle East research — while their Programs and Communications interns organize events which bring together experts from around the world to discuss the most current issues facing the Middle East.

Summer Internship Description: The Western Massachusetts Office, located in Springfield, is Governor Patrick’s first regional office.

In addition to supporting the Office’s daily operations, managing constituent casework, and assisting in the coordination of events and special forums, interns will have the opportunity to meet key public officials in an exchange with other state and local agencies. This inter-agency internship will involve collaborating with officials working in several state departments, including the Department of Revenue, the Department of Mental Health, the Department of Housing and Community Development, the Department of Transitional Assistance, the Department of Early Education and Care, the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, the Department of Environmental Protection and the Massachusetts State Police. As part of this unique initiative, interns are placed in agencies based on their policy interests, and in the spirit of career-development, will also have the opportunity to attend field trips and partake in a conflict resolution seminar. We hope interns will reflect upon their experiences and share their knowledge upon completion of the program.
Candidate Criteria: Interns are expected to serve a minimum of 20 hours each week. Students entering their sophomore year or above at an institution of higher learning are encouraged to apply. Candidates should have an interest in public service, be familiar with current events, and possess excellent phone and computer skills.
