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.
