Undergraduate Remote Innovation Internship: $15.00 Per Hour (The Nature Conservancy)

Context

The mission of The Nature Conservancy (TNC) is to conserve the lands and waters upon which all life depends. As a science-based organization, the Nature Conservancy develops innovative, on-the-ground solutions to the world’s toughest environmental challenges so that people and nature can thrive.

To be successful in its mission, The Nature Conservancy is embracing processes and novel solutions that will accelerate and amplify its impact. This work at the intersection of people and nature requires new perspectives, skillsets, and an agile approach. Within a learning environment, the undergraduate innovation intern will provide a novel and fresh perspective to an assigned team and project within the organization. The Nature Conservancy is seeking purpose-driven, impact-hungry, fun-loving interns to join in transforming its work.

Task Description

The intern will work remotely with innovation leadership and program teams to help identify, design, and implement innovative approaches to the organization’s work to enhance the impact of the existing projects. They will bring their background and expertise – perhaps in technology, analytics, design, art, activism, social change, equity, management, communications, science, engineering, coding, marketing, writing, etc. – to significantly advance innovation in conservation. This could include creating processes, building conservation solutions, designing program work, generating program materials, policies or processes, or introducing new methods and best practices into our day-to-day operations and work. The project’s content is dependent on the intern’s academic interests, unique skillset, and the needs of the organization’s many conservation programs. The organizational areas in which the intern may work include Conservation, Philanthropy, Marketing & Communications, and Operations. Program teams may be located around the U.S. and abroad, however the intern must have existing authorization to work in the U.S. and must be located in the U.S. for the duration of the internship.

Qualifications

  • A desire to grow in this role and tackle big challenges through a learning-by-doing approach. 
  • Interest in trying new approaches to work, and applying them to challenges facing the organization.
  • Interest in applying your expertise, diversity of thought, and unique background to help transform the organization.
  • Interest in supporting complex initiatives in an unstructured environment.
  • Willingness to work cross-functionally and with multiple priorities at various levels of leadership.
  • Willingness to work remotely and independently (with guidance) 35 hours per week  for 10-12 weeks.
  • Ability to communicate accurately, transparently, and to apply feedback. 
  • Ability to use technology (Microsoft Suite, Zoom, etc.) for business processes or willingness and dedication to learn.
  • Passion for change.
  • A strong sense of ethical responsibility.
