College Juniors & Seniors: Apply for Summer Ag-Conservation Internship
Deadline = March 23, 2012!
The National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) is looking for an
intern to work a 15-week summer internship from May through August at its
headquarters in Washington, D.C.
The intern will work with the Legislative Affairs and Communications staff
to advance the association’s legislative agenda. He/she will learn the
legislative process and gain valuable hands-on experience. The intern will
gain a working knowledge of Congress, federal natural resource and
environmental agencies, and an understanding of the roles conservation
districts and state conservation agencies play in the development of
natural resource, agricultural and environmental policies. The selected
intern will also be assisting with and attending NACD’s Summer Legislative
NACD interns are typically college juniors or seniors who are interested in
the environment and/or agriculture. Interns are expected to work full time,
but special arrangements can be made if classes need to be taken locally to
receive college credit. A performance-based stipend is awarded at its
conclusion. The intern is expected to find their own housing, but staff can
provide assistance and advice with the process.
Applications are due by Friday, March 23. Please send applications to
Danielle Dills at Daniellefirstname.lastname@example.org.
