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.
