Environmental Fellow, U of M Grantmakers Association (various locations)

ENVIRONMENTAL FELLOWS PROGRAM – UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN/ENVIRONMENTAL GRANTMAKERS ASSOCIATION
The Environmental Fellows Program (EFP) at the University of Michigan (U of M) School for Environment and Sustainability (SEAS) is a summer fellowship opportunity that seeks to diversify the environmental field by cultivating the career aspirations of master’s and doctoral students from historically underrepresented groups through providing work opportunities in environmental nonprofits, grant makers, and government sectors. This program arose out of a collaboration between U of M SEAS, the Environmental Grantmakers Association (EGA), and the C.S. Mott Foundation. The collaborators recognized the need for a program to identify and train diverse students to work in environmental and philanthropic sectors. This fellowship is supported by several philanthropic organizations. The Environmental Fellows Program is looking for future leaders and decision-makers in the rapidly changing fields of conservation, justice, equity, and philanthropy. Fellows are placed across the nation at nationally recognized nonprofits, social justice organizations, philanthropic organizations, environmental media outlets, policy think tanks, governmental institutions, and grassroots environmental organizations.

The full program runs from May 1 to August 31 and includes a $10,000 stipend plus travel support for the duration of the 12-week internship.

Deadline to apply is January 31.

Various Positions, All In Energy (Dorchester, Boston, Roxbury, Mattapan)

Internships in clean energy/ energy efficiency for current students and recent graduates, especially those who are residents of Dorchester, Boston, Roxbury, or Mattapan and are multi-lingual.

All In Energy is making the transition to a clean energy economy more rapid and inclusive by creating community outreach campaigns in underserved neighborhoods that drive adoption of energy-saving products and services.

 

Clean Energy Organizing Fellowship

We’re seeking a dynamic and passionate candidate to lead and expand our first campaign in Dorchester, Roxbury, and Mattapan. This is an exciting opportunity not only to learn valuable organizing and sales skills but also to shape the future of a new and innovative non-profit organization. You’ll be working directly with the co-founders of the organization and your feedback on both tactical and strategic implementation of the program will have a large impact on future campaigns. This is full-time position that will last at least one-year. At that time, the position will either become a permanent position within All In Energy or the co-founders of All In Energy will use their networks to help the CEO Fellow find a job with another clean energy company.

Community Outreach Event Representative

We’re seeking a community outreach event representative to execute our first campaign this fall in Codman Square and neighboring communities. This is a critical role in a new and innovative non-profit organization. You’ll be the face of the campaign, All In Energy, and our partner organizations. Your ability to connect with community members will allow them to take advantage of valuable state and utility energy incentive programs. These are programs that are funded by everyone who pays an electric bill, but participation rates in this community has been lower than other communities largely because, until now, no one has invited families there to participate. This is a part time role that requires evening and weekend availability.
