Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance seeks intern
The Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance seeks an enthusiastic intern for Fall 2017.
Working with our team of organizers on a variety of grassroots campaigns, the intern will complement organizers as they conduct activities throughout Utah to demonstrate support for protecting America’s Redrock wilderness. Examples of activities include, but are not limited to: coordinating registration of SUWA information tables at festivals, fairs, and events, coordinating the delivery of Protect Wild Utah lawn signs across the Wasatch Front, organizing activist events with a focus on statewide campus environmental clubs, and helping to keep SUWA’s volunteer database current.
This internship is based in Salt Lake City at SUWA’s headquarter office, 425 E 100 S and runs roughly from September 1-November 30, 2017. The intern reports to SUWA’s Utah Grassroots Organizer. Stipend $1,000 as a recipient of the Dr. Norman Weissman Internship for Preservation of Wild & Scenic Utah. Hours are part-time but flexible, roughly 16 hours/wk, working with SUWA staff on their schedule. Events may include Saturdays. There may be opportunities for the intern to participate in on-the-ground activities in southern Utah during this period.
This is a great opportunity to gain invaluable experience into the day-to-day functions of a nonprofit organization leading one of the most recognized conservation campaigns in the country, including wilderness legislation, national monuments, and legal actions. The experience offers insight into campaign planning, environmental education, and environmental action. The intern will take from the experience a new found, or reinvigorated, passion for activism and for the Redrock country.
