596 Acres is seeking an intern who can work with us 10 hours per week for 10 weeks starting March 1, 2014.
Your tasks will include talking with NYC organizers, tabling, putting up signs on vacant lots, helping us prepare for and run the April 22-23 Symposium we are co-hosting at the New School, working on wonky data projects using government information, organizational development (including putting things into our brand new database! fun!) and generally helping us improve the work that we do. Here's an unsolicited review from a former intern (now our NYC Organizer).
This is an unpaid internship. You will be working out of our office at BuildItGreen!NYC in Gowanus, Brooklyn 10-6 every Wednesday or Thursday plus some hours of field work or research.
Spring is also a busy time for outreach events so some weekend availability is a must. Supreme comfort with bikes, trains and map navigation in parts of NYC you have never visited (even if you've been nearly everywhere) is key.
Please send a resume and a letter of interest that includes a story about a time you got lost and then found. Application due by 11:59p.m. on Saturday, February 22, 2014, to email@example.com with the subject 'Spring 2014 Intern Application.'
