Our Interns

Community Forklift offers a Sustainable Business Internship every spring, summer, and fall.
As our Intern, you’ll work with our Outreach & Education Team to build our outreach & publicity both online and in the community. We’ll consider your existing skills and interests to develop a semester-long project compatible with your own academic goals.

In addition, you should expect to gain experience and skills:

  • Represent the organization at public events,
  • Conduct internet & phone research, and
  • Work both independently and within a team.

Please note that our internship is unpaid, but a small stipend to cover your travel will be reimbursed to you at the end of your internship.

Applications accepted year-round. To apply, send a cover letter and resume to Outreach(at)CommunityForklift(dot)org.

Thanks for your interest!
