Solar Campaign Internships (Boston, MA)

Solar Campaign Internships
Environment Massachusetts is building a clean and renewable future powered by the sun.

We could meet all of America’s energy needs by capturing just a sliver of the virtually limitless and pollution-free energy of the sun. And we’re making a lot of progress: in Massachusetts, solar energy has grown more than 100-fold since 2008.

But we’re still getting most of our electricity from dirty sources like coal and gas, and powerful fossil fuel companies threaten to stop solar in its tracks. This spring, we’re building support for a goal of 20% solar in Massachusetts by 2025. In order to persuade our governor to go big on solar energy, we’ll mobilize public support and build a powerful coalition of businesses and elected officials.

We’re also working this spring to restore Clean Water Act protections to thousands of miles of streams in Massachusetts and cut global warming pollution from America’s power plants.

What do interns with Environment Massachusetts do? You’ll educate and engage more people on the most critical environmental issues of our time. You’ll get our issues into the media, build coalitions, organize events and lobby decision-makers. Ultimately, you’ll help us build the public support it takes to win.

Becoming a solar campaign intern

If you agree that it’s time for Massachusetts to go solar, the best way to get involved is to apply to be an Environment Massachusetts intern today. We’re looking for students who care deeply about the environment and are ready to make a difference now.

As an intern:

  • You’ll push for smart solutions to environmental problems, and build the public support it takes to win.
  • You’ll work side-by-side with one of our organizers, learning the ropes.
  • And you’ll make a real difference on critical issues, while developing valuable skills and experience in one of the nation’s leading environmental nonprofits.
We’re hiring interns for the spring semester and for the summer. The sooner you apply, the better! And if you’re thinking you might want to make a career out of solving our greatest environmental problems, interning with Environment Massachusetts is one of the best ways to get started.Apply today! Visit http://bit.ly/1yGZvxo to submit your application.
