The Nature Conservancy has a new summer internship program.
It is a paid, 10-week summer internship program providing opportunities to gain experience in conservation, inclusive story-telling, project management and more. All STEP interns will have access to professional development trainings, Nature Conservancy webinars and field trips to gain hands on experience on their different landscapes. The internship will run from May 20 to August 11, 2023. All internships will be paid, full time, 35-hour-per-week roles, working in person at one of their Virginia offices. Housing assistance may be available for those who need it.
Two of the positions that may be of interest to students in History and American Studies include one working with TNC’s Marketing and Communications Team to research and share experiences of Indigenous people, African Americans, and other underrepresented communities on lands where TNC works. Another is working to uncover and share the lives of African Americans enslaved on Brownsville Preserveon the Eastern Shore, now the headquarters of The Nature Conservancy organization.
