Sustainability Learning Intern
Earthwatch Institute is an international, non-profit organization that engages people worldwide in scientific field research and education to promote the understanding and action necessary for a sustainable environment.
As the largest non-profit organization supporting "citizen science," in its 40-year history, Earthwatch has sponsored over 1350 field research projects in 55 countries across the globe. Earthwatch expeditions and field research centers link volunteers with international scientists working within four Priority Research Areas: Climate Change, Oceans, Ecosystem Services, and Cultural Heritage. Since 1971, Earthwatch-sponsored research projects have contributed more than 10 million hours of field research time.
The learning team focuses on building a worldwide network of environmental leaders who value the environment and prioritize it in their everyday choices & decision making and who have an authentic conviction & passion which influences others to do the same. These leaders will enable communities, organizations and businesses to make their policies, processes and practices more sustainable.
The team is responsible for managing the full life cycle (scoping, design & development, pilot, roll out, continuous improvement and impact evaluation) of our learning programs, in line with Earthwatch's learning principles and contributing actively to Earthwatch's learning community of practice to grow our organizational capacity to deliver transformational learning programs across a range of audiences.
We are recruiting interns for the following initiatives:
Skills and experience:
Earthwatch interns can take part in the Intern Credit Program in which they receive credits to use towards a qualified Earthwatch expedition and are invited to participate in all Earthwatch activities. An intern must work the full minimal 120 hours committed to be eligible to use any of their credits. We also encourage use of the internship for academic credit, thesis, or practicum work towards degree or certificate programs.
This position is based in our Boston office at 114 Western Avenue, Boston, MA 02134.
Due to the size of the program and limited time and financial resources, we are only able to accept Massachusetts based applicants into the program, or those with a confirmed place to stay within commuting distance to Boston. Applicants must currently be eligible to work in the United States. We do not have the capacity to secure a visa for international interns. We are more than happy to provide letters of acceptance to support the intern's application for a visa, but we cannot provide advice, expertise, or staff time to assist further with this matter. All interns are required to have individual health insurance. Placement will be subject to qualifications and availability.
