Intern with ELM
We accept intern applications on a rolling basis. Here are some guidelines:
- If you are interested in a spring internship, we recommend applying by November 1st.
- If you are interested in a summer internship, we recommend applying by March 1st
Due to newly open positions, summer hiring has been extended to July 8th
- If you are interested in a fall internship, we recommend applying by August 1st.
Our preference is to have interns work with us for a minimum of 15 hours per week for at least three months. Internships are paid and provide an excellent opportunity to learn about how things work at a small, statewide-focused, fast-paced advocacy organization. If you are passionate about our mission and believe you would be a strong contributor to our team, we’d like to hear from you. Organization, attention to detail, reliability, comfort working in a fast-paced environment, and ability to work collaboratively as well as with minimal supervision are some of the top qualities we seek. All internships pay $15 per hour or count for academic credit.
We are currently hiring for two positions. Please read more about potential opportunities below:
- Positioning Team Fellow: ELM’s positioning team leads the organization’s branding, communication, and fundraising efforts. The Positioning Team Fellow is responsible for supporting the team through data management, research, and event support. This is a chance to intern for a collaborative non-profit where both your work and professional development are equally valued.
Political Campaign Fellow: The ELM Action Fund is looking for interns to be part of our Campaign Fellows program who will help elect environmental champions and to build the power of the environmental community in Massachusetts.
