Internship Opportunities with the Maryland League of Conservation Voters
Date inactive: 1/7/2014

The Maryland LCV and LCV Education Fund are among Maryland's leading statewide advocacy organizations. We work in Annapolis to pass pro-conservation legislation and engage conservation minded voters on Election Day and beyond to hold elected officials accountable.

Multiple unpaid internships are available for the Winter/Spring semester in multiple locations. Visit our websites for more information:  www.mdlcv.org and www.marylandconservation.org 

The internships begin as soon as possible and end by June 30th.  The internship is 10-20 hours a week.  Attendance of all three intern seminars and a monthly phonebank is mandatory.   Also occasional trips to Annapolis may be required. Interns must have reliable transportation and access to the internet.  To apply, send resume and cover letter to Dannielle Lipinski at dlipinski@mdlcv.org- no calls please.
