The Climate Reality Project is a nonprofit organization founded by former US Vice President Al Gore. Our mission is to catalyze a global solution to the climate crisis by making urgent action a necessity across every sector of society.
At The Climate Reality Project, we come to work every day to help solve the climate crisis. We do it by working from the ground up, empowering people and communities worldwide to fight for their future and together drive a just transition to clean energy.
We are committed to building a more just and equitable world, one where all voices are heard and respected regardless of race, religion, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, or physical ability. Hence, we strongly encourage applications from people with these identities or who are members of other historically marginalized communities. We encourage applicants to read our diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice statement on our website.
Our 2023 Fall Internship begins September 5th to December 8th.
The goal of our internship program is to provide a high-quality learning experience that helps to form the foundation for a career in the climate change or environmental movement for a diverse group of individuals seeking hands-on work experience in the field.
We offer paid internships in three cycles (spring, summer, fall) that align to typical college semesters. Each cycle runs for approximately 10-15 weeks. We ask for a 15-20 hour minimum commitment per week. Interns will be allowed to work a maximum of 30 hours per week. The internship opportunities are in a variety of programs and departments that will vary from cycle to cycle. Every Climate Reality intern is assigned a mentor who works closely with them to help navigate the organization, create overall objectives, and oversee their work plan.
This is a hybrid position, currently expected to work from Climate Reality’s Washington, DC office at least two days per week.
Interns will be paid $17.00/hr and will receive a Climate Reality Macbook to use during their internship.
We’re seeking a highly motivated intern to assist in engaging the public about implementing bold climate and clean energy policies through our digital platforms. This intern will be a key member of our digital team, helping launch innovative web, video, email, SMS, and social media campaigns; recruit new online activists; educate our supporter base on the latest climate change developments; and mobilize our membership to take meaningful online and offline action.
Our interns have done everything from writing blog posts, to creating graphics seen by tens of thousands of people, to engaging high-profile experts in online conversations, to writing e-books and emails containing tips for talking about climate change. We work closely with our interns to fit their strengths with the desired skills they need to build relevant experience for their future careers.
