We love our interns because they play a vital role in supporting our work.
Through working with us, interns not only gain a basic foundation in environmental justice, they also get to put a mark on the work they do for us. All projects are promptly put into action in our Climate Justice Community School, Food Justice Coalition programming, our course suite, and/or the classroom. 

Currently, we are accepting interns paid through the NYC Summer Youth Employment Program provider network and through high school and university programs compensated via credit.
