Throughout the year, there are a variety of opportunities to volunteer with the NEC to help us continue our important work for our forests, coasts, rivers, and communities. For 45 years, the NEC has relied on the energy and commitment of our volunteers to achieve goals that would not be possible without your help!
You, too, can contribute to these goals with the gift of your time. Tasks range from small yet helpful tasks, such as delivery of EcoNews, to those that require special skills or a longer-term commitment, like website upgrading.
We take interns in the Fall, Spring and Summer semesters. We have hired all interns for summer 2018 except for the Coastal Program Planning internship. Check back in early fall for next semester’s opportunities. Internships are open to students and non-students. (Students interested in college internship credit would need to consult with their course or major advisors to determine requirements).
