2022 Internships Opportunities

 

Internships are available year-round with the Corvallis Environmental Center. They are an opportunity to learn more about the world of nonprofit and environmental work, and to get involved with our organization. These unique and applicable work experiences are UNPAID but are eligible for academic credits (check with your academic advisor to see if this is a possibility for you). The CEC offers multiple internships throughout our programs and each works with several students every term.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis; expect to hear from a staff member within a few days to setup interviews.
