Summer Internship at Beyond Pesticides

Beyond Pesticides is a national non-profit membership organization,
founded in 1981, dedicated to educating the public about the toxic
hazards of pesticides and safer alternatives. The organization
advocates for strong policy to protect public health and the
environment. Beyond Pesticides' programs are focused on school
pesticide use, lawn care, insect-borne diseases, organic agriculture,
documenting pesticide poisoning incidents, and watchdogging federal,
state and local governments.


Responsibilities may include:
Producing materials, including factsheets, articles, report
contributions, and online materials.
Updating and developing webpages at www.beyondpesticides.org.
Assisting in fielding phone calls and emails from the public,
researching and answering information requests.
Assist the executive director and program staff with outreach,
research and administrative tasks on an as-needed basis.


Interns are given tasks that match their interests, skills and
background with Beyond Pesticides' goals. In addition to working on
specific projects, interns will gain insight into the importance of
grassroots action, the complexities of environmental issues, and how
non-profits function. Internships are based on a small stipend and
vary in length from 3 months to 1 year.

***Internship dates are flexible and may start as early as May 1st***
