Internships

Powder River Basin Resource Council regularly hires full and part-time interns to provide assistance to staff in the following areas:

  • Community Outreach & Organizing: Interns will work with staff to recruit & empower citizen activists, hold and plan events, and raise visibility about our local campaigns
  • Research Assistance: Interns will provide vital research assistance to help write comments to federal and state agencies, prepare fact sheets and other information, and carry out other campaign activities

Hours

Interns are expected to work a minimum of 10 hours a week. Times during the day are flexible, and some work can be carried out off-site. If you are interested in telecommuting, please specify that in your application, but priority will be given to students who can work from our office.

Qualifications

Intern applicants should have demonstrated commitment to natural resource conservation issues, organizing and/or progressive social change. Interns should have highly effective written and verbal communication skills and style. We seek someone with good organizational and critical thinking skills and the ability to juggle several tasks while making and meeting deadlines.

Benefits

We provide a living stipend to our interns and assist applicants in obtaining other stipends through public interest funding opportunities available through their schools. Interns will gain valuable skills and understanding by working at a successful Wyoming grassroots organization and through mentorship from Powder River staff. Opportunities for travel within the beautiful state of Wyoming are available, including attending policy related meetings with state and federal agencies or meetings with members throughout our geographic focus areas.
