Campaign Intern                                                                                                                               Environment North Carolina                                                                                                              Fall semester, unpaid

Description:

We’ve got big challenges to face. As our earth continues to warm, we must shift our energy sources to renewable energy, stop the expansion of dirty energy, and ensure that our air, water, and open spaces are protected for generations to come. We know that in order to tackle these problems, we need more than just a handful of concerned citizens. We need trained organizers ready to advocate for solutions. That’s what Environment North Carolina’s internship program is all about.

Throughout the program, our interns learn the ins and outs of environmental advocacy and organizing. We train interns on skills like working with the media, building coalitions, public speaking, and grassroots outreach. Additionally, interns have the opportunity to attend events with decision makers, help organize press conferences, and make a real impact over the course of the program.

Training

We run both formal training sessions and typical on the job training. The biggest goal of the internship is to learn the skills of an environmental organizer. Some of this comes through classroom style training, but most will come through actually doing the tactics that help win our campaigns.

Over the course of the internship, you will receive training on:

Grassroots outreach: petitioning, phone banking, photo-petitioning

Working with the media: generating opinion media and garnering earned media

Building coalitions of important constituents

Advocating on behalf of environmental policies to decision makers

Organizing and mobilizing the public around events or important decisions

In addition to these skills, you will be a critical part of the Environment North Carolina campaign team to hit our goals that will help win on issues like growing solar for the state and keeping offshore drilling from the coast.

Expectations

Our internship is unlike many others. Interns work alongside our organizers, and are a key part in helping us win our campaigns. This isn’t getting coffee or making copies, it’s learning what it really takes to ensure that our environment is protected. Our interns receive excellent training throughout the program, and also have a lot of responsibility. This internship requires between 8-12 hours per week.

Over the course of the internship, interns are expected to:

Generate one letter to the editor per week to raise visibility of our issues in the media

Participate in weekly phone banks with our organizing team to mobilize grassroots support for our campaigns

Complete one capstone project as determined by your internship supervisor

Organize one event (movie screening, forum, visibility event, etc) to help educate the public on our issues

Hit other campaign goals as outlined by your internship supervisor

After graduating the program, interns will have accomplished real progress towards winning our campaigns.

Topline Goals

MEDIA: submit 12 letters to the editor and 1 opinion editorials

COALITION: recruit at least 25 partners onto campaign coalition

GRASSROOTS: participate in 12 phone banks (lead 1)

GRASSROOTS: gather 200 petitions or photo petitions

RESEARCH: complete one capstone project related to environmental policy or research

EVENTS: organize one public event
