Looking to gain professional experience working for an environmental nonprofit? TreesCharlotte is currently looking for interns to join our team! We accept resumes on a continuous rolling basis.
About TreesCharlotte: TreesCharlotte is a public/private nonprofit collaboration to grow, diversify and steward the city’s iconic urban forest. Trained volunteers and science-based programs teach residents about the value of trees and how to plant and care for them.
Known as “The City of Trees,” Charlotte has a wonderful foundation for achieving manageable canopy goals. However, a detailed analysis shows we must take a more aggressive approach to ensure the continued health and well-being of our tree canopy, and we must actively plant thousands of trees to account for growth and development in our city and around the region.
Internship Summary: The TreesCharlotte Intern will hold a dynamic position within our organization. They are responsible for assisting with the education programs including schools and adult activities, stewardship programs such as TreeCare, and CommunityWoods (tree plantings and adoptions). They will also support day-to-day administrative activities alongside the Director of Programs, Community Educator/Arborist, Community Engagement Manager, and Development & Marketing Coordinator.
