APCC is committed to training the environmental leaders of tomorrow. Our internship program is designed to provide interns with challenging environmental projects that yield meaningful results. All intern projects support our mission to protect and restore the natural environment of Cape Cod and to promote environmental stewardship.
Examples of past intern projects: designing community visioning exercises to promote smart growth, developing a Cape-wide inventory of restoration projects, mapping natural communities and shoreline change, developing a web-based interactive Critical Habitats Atlas, surveying municipal stormwater management needs, monitoring salt marsh restoration sites, developing education materials, and identifying salt marsh restoration priorities that will enable salt marsh migration to occur as sea level rises.
Equal Opportunity Employer: APCC is an Equal Opportunity Employer and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, age, sex, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, disability or any other protected class.
Fieldwork: Applicants who are interested in conducting field projects should be able to physically traverse rough terrain. APCC will make reasonable accommodation for otherwise qualified students who have a physical handicap.
Transportation: Work will often entail travel across Cape Cod. Applicants must provide their own means of transportation but will be reimbursed for mileage at standard rates.
Housing: Housing is not included in any APCC internship program. APCC will assist interns in locating housing, but it is ultimately the responsibility of the intern. Cape Cod is a tourist destination and housing can be expensive.
Applying for a 2018 Summer Internship: Each year APCC has paid summer interns who work with APCC staff on specific projects. These projects change from year to year depending on our needs. In late January 2018 we will post descriptions of our summer internships and the skills and experience that we are seeking. Check our website at that time. Instructions on applying will be posted along with the internship descriptions. For more information, please contact Dr. Jo Ann Muramoto, Director of Science Programs, at (508) 619-3185.
