Campus Coordinator Intern, Environment Massachusetts (Boston, MA)

Global warming is happening and we’re seeing the effects all around us — from
dangerous heat waves and droughts to the record snowstorms of 2015. And scientists warn it could get much worse unless we act soon.

That’s why we’re calling on our state’s leaders to repower Massachusetts with 100 percent clean, renewable energy.

But powerful special interests like the utility companies are threatening to stop clean energy in its tracks.

Environment Massachusetts is looking for smart, hard-working students to build the people power it will take to repower Massachusetts with clean energy. As an intern you would be the coordinator for our statewide Student Activist Network at your school. You would be expected to work 4-7 hours per week from campus. There will be 1-2 days of travel to Boston to work with the Statewide Student Activist Network. The position is unpaid.
