SUWA seeks an enthusiastic intern for Summer 2020! Working with our team of organizers on a variety of grassroots campaigns, the intern will complement organizers as they conduct activities throughout Utah to demonstrate support for protecting America’s redrock wilderness. Examples of activities include, but are not limited to: coordinating registration of SUWA information tables at festivals, fairs and events, coordinating delivery of Protect Wild Utah lawn signs across the Wasatch Front, organizing activist events, helping to keep SUWA’s volunteer database current, and heading up a special project.
This internship is based in Salt Lake City at SUWA’s headquarter office, 425 E 100 S and runs roughly from May through July 2020. The intern reports to SUWA’s Utah Grassroots Organizer. Stipend $1,000 as a recipient of the Dr. Norman Weissman Internship for Preservation of Wild & Scenic Utah. Hours are part-time but flexible, roughly 10-16 hours/wk., working with SUWA staff on their schedule. Events will likely include weekends. There may be opportunities for the intern to participate in on-the-ground activities in southern Utah during this period.
This is a great opportunity to gain invaluable experience into the day-to-day functions of a nonprofit organization leading one of the most recognized conservation campaigns in the country, including wilderness legislation, national monuments and legal actions. The experience offers insight into campaign planning, environmental education and environmental action. The intern will take from the experience a new found, or reinvigorated, passion for activism and the redrock country.
Interested applicants should send a one-page cover letter summarizing the reasons why you’re the best candidate, where this opportunity fits into your education, and describing what you intend to do with the experience. Please also include a one-page resume outlining your work and education background. Send both items to: Dave Pacheco, SUWA, email@example.com. Application deadline is April 15, 2020.
