Mountain School Education Internship
North Cascades Institute is seeking motivated undergraduate students to be spring and fall interns at its Environmental Learning Center (ELC), located on the shores of Diablo Lake in North Cascades National Park. The Environmental Education intern will work under constant supervision by Institute staff and graduate students. The internship is designed to provide job training in environmental education with the practical application of learned skills. As such, interns will receive continuous support from supervisors and mentors, who will observe, advise, and assist as needed. Primary duties will include shadowing and co-teaching our residential environmental education program, Mountain School; assisting with Learning Center operations; and participating in Institute events, staff meetings, and program debriefs. In addition, interns will be responsible for completing an independent project of their choice that is relevant to their college degree program and to their internship experience. This is an unpaid internship and is a full-time position. Interns should expect to work five days (approximately forty hours) each week. Some weekend work may be required. There is some flexibility with responsibilities based upon individual university requirements, skills and interests. It is the responsibility of the intern to complete paperwork with his or her college or university necessary to receive credit for the experience.
