Internship: Environmental Leadership Intern

The Environmental Leadership Intern (ELI) works under the direction of the Program Manager and Field Coordinator as part of the RMFI field staff and will help coordinate RMFI’s community volunteer projects. Community volunteer projects take place primarily on weekends and select weekdays, from early April to mid-November. Project sites may include Garden of the Gods and other City of Colorado Springs parks, Barr Trail, Bear Creek Canyon, and the Waldo Canyon and Black Forest burn areas. Intern responsibilities will include engaging volunteers in project tasks, assisting with the maintenance and care of tools and gear, and overseeing safety and project goals. Interns may progress in responsibilities toward planning and running portions of a field workday. This position will consist mostly of weekend fieldwork. It is a great introduction to nonprofit operations and offers a chance to gain experience in the environmental stewardship and education sectors as well as in volunteer supervision.
