The Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN) is the only group in the Chesapeake region of Maryland, Virginia and Washington D.C. dedicated exclusively to building a powerful grassroots movement to fight climate change. Their mission is to build the kind of movement it will take to put this region on the path to climate stability, while using their proximity to the nation’s capital to inspire action in neighboring states, around the country and around the world.
Internships at CCAN are primarily education-focused, to arm interns with experience toward their career and life goals. Interns receive a limited reimbursement for incidental expenditures. CCAN encourages interns to pursue course credit for their internship, or external grant opportunities if those are available, and they will support these pursuits in any way they can.
The internship positions currently available at CCAN include:
Students must fill out a Google Form Application, where they will be prompted to upload their resume. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. Some internships also require a cover letter and/or a writing sample.
