Job Description

Earthjustice is the nation’s premier nonprofit environmental law organization. We take on the biggest, most precedent-setting cases across the country. We wield the power of law and the strength of partnership to protect people’s health; to preserve magnificent places and wildlife; to advance clean energy; and to combat climate change. We partner with thousands of groups, supporters, individuals and communities to engage the critical environmental issues of our time, and bring about positive change. We are here because the earth needs a good lawyer.

 

Founded in 1971, Earthjustice has a distinguished track record of achieving significant, lasting environmental protections. We achieve this by hiring talented and dedicated attorneys who share a passion for justice and a healthy environment. Our headquarters are in San Francisco with nine offices across the U.S.

 

The communications intern works with the communications department at Earthjustice headquarters in San Francisco, California, to generate more media and brand awareness of Earthjustice’s work. The intern will assist various teams within the department with communication projects that involve writing, online research, event planning, social media outreach, blogging and the occasional administrative duties. Through the internship, the intern will learn the various roles of the communications department at a large nonprofit environmental organization.

 

We prefer applicants to be currently enrolled in college, but will make exceptions for qualified candidates. They should be passionate about environmental issues and have exposure to previous communications work, though professional work experience is not required. Applicants should have excellent writing, organizational, and communication skills, and be an independent, motivated worker. A working knowledge of online research and MS Office programs is required.

 

This is a part-time internship that requires a minimum of 20 hours per week. Hours are flexible, but the intern must be in the office on Mondays for the weekly department check-in.
