Environment Texas Intern - Application Deadline
Wed, May 1, 2013
If you want to spend the semester 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 Texas.
The need to confront our environmental challenges has never been clearer. Take our nation’s energy policy. We know we need to kick our addition to dirty energy, and we need to get started today.
The good news is, America has the know-how and technology to generate 100 percent of our electricity from clean sources.
But the oil and coal industries – and their allies in Congress and state legislatures across the country – are standing in the way of change. They have deep pockets and incredible influence, and they’ll stop at little to maintain business as usual.
That’s where Environment Texas comes in. Our mission is to research and advocate the policies and build and mobilize the public support necessary to win positive change for the environment.
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. We have a great training program, so no prior organizing experience is necessary, although if you have some that’s great!
Environment Texas is hiring interns to work in our Austin office.
