Paid Summer Internships with The Nature Conservancy's GLOBE Program
Offering internships in the following areas: Conservation/Environmental Studies, Science, Information Technology (Computer Science), Marketing/Business, Marketing (Photo editing/Production Assistant), Communications, MBA Finance, Policy, Government Relations, Audit, and Philanthropy.
Through the GLOBE (Growing Leaders on Behalf of the Environment) internship program, The Nature Conservancy hires students and recent college graduates to fill paid internship positions during a 10-week summer internship. This is a unique opportunity for students and recent graduates to bridge the gap between what is learned in the classroom and on-the-ground work in the world of conservation. Additionally, the GLOBE program provides interns with the chance to directly work toward a sustainable future for our planet on the side of the Conservancy, the world’s largest environmental organization.
This year we have 33 open internship positions and they are all posted at www.nature.org/careers. Students may apply for more than one position. To assist and pass on to students I have attached an overview along with some of the positions open.

Impact The Youth Mentoring (iTY) from SORCE
iTY is a program that will reinforce positivity for our youth through college mentoring and providing positive role models for early class high school students. The college students (life models) will be influential supporters and provide guidance, encouragement, and life skills which in turn will help develop self-esteem and self-confidence for youth in our community. The meetings which will be held on campus will demonstrate the importance of a college education and opportunities for positive growth and development. iTY is designed to not only impact the high school students, but will also impact the lives of the life models who will be accountable for the guidance and support of their mentees. Impact the Youth will provide the opportunity to make a difference in each other lives either through mentoring or being a mentee. The schools we work with are New Vista High School and Boulder High School. Contact Bill.email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
