Environmental Leadership Intern

RMFI is accepting multiple intern applicants into its Environmental Leadership Intern (ELI) program for the 2016 field season. The ELI works as part of the RMFI field staff and helps coordinate community volunteer projects in the outdoors, primarily on weekends and select weekdays, from early April to mid-November. Project sites include Garden of the Gods and other 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. Over the course of two semesters or one summer, interns may progress in responsibilities toward planning and running portions of a field workday. 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. This is an unpaid internship position.
