We’re looking for interns!

After the success of our internship program in the future Patagonia National Park, we’ve decided to start an internship program at our U.S. office, in the Marin Headlands just north of San Francisco.  We’re excited about this opportunity to get to know and work with some enthusiastic and talented young environmentalists.  Two positions are available: a communications internship and a membership internship.  Descriptions below; please forward them on to anyone you can think of who might be interested!

 The communications intern will play a key role in CP’s social media strategy through maintaining our presence on Facebook, Twitter, and Causes.  Writing blog posts will also be part of the position.  The internship will also include researching and writing about topics related to the creation of Patagonia National Park, including grasslands restoration, current environmental events in Latin America, and the development of national parks throughout the world. The intern will also help produce materials for visitors to the future park: information packets, websites, brochures, and the like.  Assisting in the production and mailing of the annual funding appeal will also be part of this position.  S/he will join the team of people creating this new Yosemite-sized park in one of the most beautiful areas of Patagonia and learn about wilderness conservation, nonprofit management, and communications.

 Our office in the Marin Headlands is located on Rodeo Beach, with excellent access to surfing, trail running, biking and hiking.  Interns will be given office space and use of our facilities, including showers and a full kitchen.  The ability to commute to this office, either by car or bike, is a necessity.   We ask interns to commit 10 hours a week for six months.

 Interest in environmental issues, organization, motivation, the ability to write quickly in a clear/ concise manner and internet researching skills are required.  A strong command of written and spoken Spanish is preferred.  Recent college graduates and current students are encouraged to apply.  We are willing to provide documentation necessary to help get students credit.  This internship is unpaid.
