As the Trump Administration continues its assault on climate science and our most basic environmental protections, we need leaders who are ready to stand up and fight for a better world -- now more than ever. Defend Our Future has been at the front lines of this fight since day one and we’ve won some pretty incredible battles along the way. Now, with a new, more climate-friendly congress in place, we’ll have our best opportunity to date to make progress on this issue. However, that’s only if young people continue to make their voices heard loud and clear.
As a Spring Intern you will play a lead role in helping to make that happen. You’ll will work with a student-led team that educates and inspires peers to be leaders in the climate movement. Spring Interns will engage in quality, face-to-face conversations with peers, visit with Members of Congress, write Letters-to-the-Editor and build strategic community partnerships. In addition, you will help with planning and holding educational events about the climate threat, how it impacts our communities and what students can do to help in the fight against it.
Defend Our Future is a project of the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF). EDF is one of the world’s largest non-profit environmental organizations whose mission is to find solutions, guided by science and economics, that benefit people and the environment.
