We are deeply committed to prioritizing the leadership of those who bear the brunt of corporate abuse: women, people of color, low-income people, people in the Global South, disabled and LGBTQ folks around the world, therefore folks holding these identities are strongly encouraged to apply for our internships program.

In the internship, you will learn alongside our dynamic, passionate climate and membership team and learn skills such as power mapping, campaign research, member outreach, and project management. Interns will come away from the experience ready to take action and apply these skills to the social change issues they want to address in their local communities or schools.
