Community Outreach and Organizing Intern
We're hiring a Community Outreach and Organizing Intern through Alaska Conservation Foundation's 2019 Ted Smith Conservation Internship Program! The intern will work as part of a dynamic organization and team that fights to protect the Tongass National Forest, the largest remaining temperate rainforest in the world, and to support sustainable development of communities across Southeast Alaska. The intern will gain in-depth knowledge about the natural environment of the Tongass, as well as experience in community organizing, advocacy, outreach, and community event planning.
The goals of the internship are to foster the practice of democracy, empower citizens to stand up and make their voices heard, and influence elected leaders to consider the environmental ramifications of their decisions in policy. In addition to some office-based responsibilities, the intern will spend most of their time out in the community, having one-on-one conversations about local issues and encouraging community members to get involved.
