Intern for Sierra Club this Fall: Get School Credit for Protecting the Planet

Make an impact this fall by Promoting Renewable Energy, Protecting the Potomac, Battling Big Coal and more!

The Sierra Club is seeking passionate students concerned about the environment, especially with specific interest in climate change and/or skills with online and social media, to intern in our Alexandria office this fall.

Since 1892, the Sierra Club has been working to protect communities, wild places, and the planet itself. We are the oldest, largest, and most influential grassroots environmental organization in the United States.

This internship will give you hands-on experience working with volunteers and activists, environmental advocates, community and elected leaders to ensure public health and our environment are protected from big polluters. Interns will assist the staff in building for events, planning media conferences, and recruiting community volunteers.

Interns must be willing to commit 15-20 hours per week, September - early December 2011.  Our office is located on Mount Vernon Avenue in Alexandria, VA.

The internship is unpaid but offers valuable professional experience with high levels of responsibility, is a great resume builder, and fulfills community service requirements. Sierra Club will also work with students to gain class credit for internship when applicable. 

Interested applicants should email their resume to: by Sept. 2nd.
