Volunteer Internship Program, MassDEP (Massachusetts)

The Department of Environmental Protection is the state agency responsible for ensuring clean air and water, the safe management of toxics and hazards, the recycling of solid and hazardous wastes, the timely cleanup of hazardous waste sites and spills, and the preservation of wetlands and coastal resources. MassDEP is one of the agencies in the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs and its role under Article 97 of the Massachusetts Constitution is to be the guarantor of the people’s right to “clean air and water”, as well as “the natural scenic, historic and aesthetic qualities of the environment.”
