Maryland Sierra Club Summer and Fall 2016 Internships

As a grassroots environmental nonprofit, the Maryland Sierra Club offers many internship opportunities for those passionate about advocating for a safer, healthier planet. At our office conveniently located just steps from the University of Maryland campus in College Park, MD, students can take advantage of diverse openings in office management & administration, outdoor education, political environmental advocacy, communications & marketing, web design, community organizing, event planning, and policy research.

Our interns become part of the office team and are essential to accomplishing many of the Chapter’s environmental conservation goals. Working side by side with staff and lead volunteers, interns get the opportunity to see how a grassroots non­profit works, gain valuable real world experience, and become the next generation of activist leaders.

·         Administration, Chapter Coordination
