Description: The Climate Reality Project offers an unpaid internship program to qualified candidates in several areas of interest including communications, grassroots organizing and development.

The Climate Speakers Network (CSN) is a new program that seeks to engage the “silent majority” of Americans who are concerned about climate change, but are unsure of what they can do to support solutions. CSN trains, supports, and empowers peer messengers to use their own values and vocabulary to engage their communities on the challenges and opportunities presented by climate change. Climate Speakers represent a diverse set of backgrounds, from businesses and local community groups to churches and cultural organizations. By leveraging peer messengers and shifting the narrative on climate change to focus on solutions, the Climate Speakers Network is expanding the chorus of voices calling for action. CSN is looking for an intern to help expand the program in Summer 2015.

Responsibilities:

  • Researching local community groups and engagement opportunities for Climate Speakers.
  • Assisting in development of training materials.
  • Conducting grassroots outreach to event hosts and partner organizations.

  • Organized, detail-oriented, and able to work both independently and as part of a team.
  • Strong Microsoft Office skills.
