In 2008, CTNC established an internship program for students from diverse backgrounds with our state’s 10 historically black colleges and universities. Through this program, now expanded to the entire UNC system, CTNC, local land trusts, and other conservation groups introduce promising students to careers in conservation and introduce conservation organizations to potential employees.
Interns are placed with host organizations for full-time, 10-week, paid internships that provide hands-on opportunities to gain the skills and experiences necessary for a successful career in conservation. So far, 57 students have completed internships, and they all did significant and meaningful work with their host organizations. CTNC is excited to support 17 interns at organizations across North Carolina in 2015. Find out about available positions below:
