The Earth Island Institute’s New Leaders Initiative, which seeks to elevate bold, emerging young leaders in the environmental movement through the Brower Youth Awards and other year-round programs, invites applications for 2012 interns. Interns will be exposed to some of the leading grassroots and national youth-led efforts, and have the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of working in an environmental nonprofit. Intern tasks vary seasonally according to the program cycle and include outreach and communications, application recruitment and processing, event planning, media outreach and soliciting donations and program partners.

Applications should be sent to Anisha Desai at anisha@earthisland.org and will be accepted on a rolling basis.
