Environment America Fellowship Program

Learn more/apply
Early application deadline: Sunday, February 16th


Environment Massachusetts is a statewide environmental advocacy organization that works to protect clean air, clean water, and open space. We’re part of Environment America, a federation of 29 state-based groups with nearly 100 professional staff and more than 1 million members, activists and allies across the country.


Here in Massachusetts, we’re working to clean up dirty power plants, protect the Cape Cod National Seashore and the Connecticut River, and bring more solar energy to our state. Each year, we hire graduating seniors with the passion, the commitment and the talent it takes to stand up to polluting industries, fight for a green future and do what it takes to win.


Our
Fellowship Program is a two-year crash course in the nuts and bolts of environmental activism, organizing, advocacy and the type of institution-building that can sustain long-term battles.

As a fellow, you’re not just learning how to make an impact; you’re making one.
Hear from four fellows about their work tackling tough environmental problems like runaway development and our dependence on coal.

After two years as a fellow, you’ll have learned the ropes, gained invaluable hands-on experience and you’ll have made a real difference for the environment. 
Hear from two former fellows about the work they’re doing now and how the Fellowship Program prepared them for it.

And if you’re not graduating this year, you should apply to be an Environment Massachusetts intern – you’ll learn how to make an impact on critical environmental issues, and there’s no better way to get the experience to launch your career with us.

Environment America Positions Available (Nationwide)

Work for a green future: Apply to be an Environment America fellow

Each year, Environment America hires recent college graduates with the passion, the commitment and the talent it takes to stand up to polluters, organize public support and fight for our environmental values. You can find out more about us and apply to be an Environment America fellow by visiting https://jobs.environmentamerica.org.

 

Environment America

Environment America works to advance the environmental vision and values we share—clean energy, clean water, wilderness and wildlife protection, healthy food and sustainable agriculture, and more. With nearly 100 professional staff, more than 1 million members, activists and allies and affiliates in 29 states, we organize the support it takes to stand up to polluting industries and ultimately sweep past them.  The results of our work include more solar and wind power in 22 states, caps on global warming pollution in six states and a regional cap on global warming pollution from power plants in 10 states, bans on plastic bags in more than 50 cities, better-protected parks, and stronger protections for our waterways.

But let’s not kid ourselves: our planet is still in deep trouble. Temperatures are soaring, forests are burning, and sea levels are rising. Factory farms and other polluters have created massive biological dead zones in the Gulf of Mexico and the Chesapeake Bay. Mining, logging, budget cuts and other threats plague our national and state parks.

Fighting for the environment is the challenge of a lifetime. You need to start somewhere. But where?

Environment America fellows

As an Environment America fellow, you’ll get a two-year crash course in the nuts and bolts of environmental activism, organizing, advocacy and the type of institution-building that can sustain long-term battles. The work you’ll do will matter, and be essential to our success from day one.

Learn by doing

Working with our senior staff, you’ll plan and run grassroots campaigns, lobby lawmakers, publish op-eds, set up and speak at news conferences, organize town hall meetings, run citizen outreach campaigns, identify new members, raise money, recruit and manage staff and much more.

Gain the experience you need to lead

After two years, you’ll have participated in a rigorous training, gained invaluable hands-on experience, taken on more responsibility than you thought possible, and made a difference on issues that matter day-in and day-out. And, best of all, you’ll be ready to become a lead advocate, a lead organizer or a state director with Environment America or one of our state affiliates. You might even start a new state affiliate or launch a new program.

Intern with Environment America (Washington D.C.)

If you want to spend the fall learning how to make a real impact on the decisions that affect the energy we use, the air we breathe, the water we drink and the places we love, apply for an internship with Environment America. We’re taking applications now for fall internships in Washington D.C. and our 29 state offices around the country.

So, what do interns with Environment America do?  Make a real impact on critical environmental issues!

You’ll learn how to analyze environmental problems, advocate for smart solutions, and build public support.  And you’ll work one-on-one with one of our advocates and organizers, providing a unique, mentored experience.

Responsibilities vary, but you’ll do some mix of:

  • Researching critical environmental problems and preparing reports to release to the public
  • Coordinating and attending media events, like news conferences
  • Writing and publishing letters to the editor and working on news releases
  • Attending lobby meetings with lawmakers and other decision-makers
  • Working with coalition partners, like public health groups and other environmental groups
  • Tracking legislation or regulations on the federal or state levels
  • Generating public support for our campaigns, such as by collecting petitions or using social media

And you’ll attend briefings and trainings to learn more about environmental issues and gain advocacy and organizing skills.

Although Environment America Internships are unpaid, we’ll work with you to secure academic credit from your college or university if that is an option.

What happens after my internship?

Through an internship with Environment America you’ll get the training and the experience you need to be better prepared for a career in the environmental movement.  And each year, Environment America hires passionate, talented and committed college graduates to join our two-year Fellowship Program. Some of our former interns have gone on to become some of our most successful Fellows.

Qualifications

We are looking for current college students who care about our environment and are driven to preserve it for the future. We look for strong leadership skills, academic excellence, problem solving ability, top-notch written and verbal skills, eagerness to learn, and a sense of humor.
