Communications Internship - DC

Our Washington, DC office has an internship opportunity available for students enrolled in Communications-related university programs with an interest in conservation. This internship opportunity will offer the intern hands-on opportunities to strategize with Policy and Government Affairs staff, influence public opinion and protect America’s wild places.

Interns will be immersed in wilderness and energy policy from day one, and will be involved in:

  • Drafting press releases
  • Crafting reporter pitches
  • Writing for The Wilderness Society website
  • Using social media and online advocacy tools to reach members and supporters

Students looking to burnish their public relations, writing and journalism skills will find our Communications department to be a fast-paced, high-energy place where they can learn about the environmental community and how The Wilderness Society works to protect the country’s most important public lands and natural resources. Interns will also be responsible for administrative duties in The Wilderness Society’s Ansel Adams Gallery. 

This is a full-time, paid internship, extending approximately three (3) months with an hourly rate of $10.00.
