Recruitment Outreach Intern
The mission of Green Corps is to train organizers, provide field support for today’s critical environmental campaigns, and graduate activists who possess the skills, temperament, and commitment to fight and win tomorrow’s environmental battles. Since our founding in 1992, Green Corps has partnered with more than 75 environmental organizations, provided critical field support to 100 campaigns, and secured dozens of significant victories in conservation, corporate accountability, and public health.
The Recruitment Outreach Interns will help coordinate the following projects:
· Event Planning: The interns will coordinate the planning of Green Corps’ 2nd Round Interview weekends with an expected attendance of 300 candidates. This includes duties such as VIP outreach for invited guests and major donors, weekend locations and logistics, travel and housing arrangements for candidates and materials creation and duplication.
· Online Outreach: The interns will coordinate our online recruitment campaign to raise the visibility of Green Corps’ Field School for Environmental Organizing. This will include planning and implementing targeted outreach to websites, job boards, blogs, and social-networking sites such as MySpace and Facebook.
· Career Center and Campus Outreach: Interns will contact career centers across the country to coordinate recruitment, visibility events and on-campus interviews. Interns will also recruit top student leaders for the Green Corps program with campus outreach.
The start and end dates are flexible, although most interns begin in September and work through December, with the possibility of continuing year-round. Interns typically work between 10-20 hours/week, and the level of commitment can be tailored to your schedule.
We are looking for people who are serious about saving the planet, and have a desire to strengthen and grow the environmental movement.
The internships are unpaid, but interns are given the opportunity to audit portions of Green Corps’ August Introductory Classroom Training, which features training from top environmental leaders in organizing, advocacy, and leadership skills.
