Mentoring the next generation of advocates has always been a fundamental part of our mission.

Through our Emerging Leaders Program, we’ve mentored over 175 leaders over the last 20 years. Every year, we focus on developing the leadership of individuals from varied backgrounds who demonstrate a passion for justice and a desire to pursue a career in public interest environmental work.

 

Our Summer Associate and Legal Extern internships are open to current law school students, and our Communications and Development internships are open to individuals aged 15 and older. For the most part, we only offer summer internships. We occasionally offer part time internships to Legal Externs and Communications or Development interns in the Fall & Spring.

 

One of Crag’s goals is to make internships available to people with perspectives historically excluded from the environmental movement. To make our internship program more accessible, we offer paid summer internship positions.

Communications & Development Internships

Communications & Development

Our Communications and Development internships are available for individuals aged 15 and older interested in working at a public interest environmental law nonprofit and supporting the development and communications team with fundraising, outreach, and communications projects. By helping to communicate about our work, interns have an opportunity to learn about the landscape of environmental laws and how we use them to protect our communities, climate, and wild places.

Our Communications & Development internships are part-time (20-32 hours/week) for 8-10 weeks during June-August. These intern positions are paid $16/hour for up to 300 hours.

Applications for our 2024 Summer Communications & Development interns are now closed. Thank you for your interest. 

Legal Internships (law school students only)

Summer Associates

Through our Summer Associate program, Crag provides opportunities for law students to gain hands-on experience working at a public interest environmental law center. Law students work one-on-one with Crag attorneys, gaining exposure to litigation, advocacy, engaging with clients, and legal research and writing for our active cases.

Our Summer Associate positions are full-time (40 hours/week) for a minimum of 10 weeks during the summer (May–August). Summer Associate positions are paid $20/hour for up to 400 hours. Work study funding may also be available to qualifying candidates.

Applications for our 2024 Summer Associate positions are now closed. Thank you for your interest.
