As a lean organization (equivalent of 3 full-time employees) with a large global reach and impact, we love working with interns who help us achieve our mission. Interns get plenty of responsibility, real work experience, and great connections for life. Interns serve as volunteers although some get college credit or find scholarships or other funding sources. The Ocean Project has depended on bright, energetic, creative, and responsible interns since we were formed and are an integral part of our team.
We provide volunteer internship opportunities year round for youth (ages 16-23) and seek creative individuals with solid communications (electronic, verbal and written) and strong analytical skills. A marine science background is not required. The Ocean Project has been based in Providence, RI since 1999 but been virtual since 2012 and our team members and interns live in cities based across the United States and other countries around the world.
The Ocean Project provides internship opportunities undergraduate and graduate students, as well as those who are recently graduated. Responsibilities are continually changing and also depend on the intern’s interests, education, experience, and time commitment. Also, while interns are volunteers, when paid team positions do arise, we prefer to hire interns.
To apply, submit a cover letter, resume, and brief writing sample (no more than three pages and any type of sample welcome; it’s up to you to decide what you would like to convey). In your application please let us know what you would, ideally, focus on to help us advance our collaborative conservation mission. Interns are accepted on a rolling basis.
