The National Wildlife Federation's internship program brings students and recent graduates to National Wildlife Federation offices around the country, where they can experience different aspects of environmental work, including conservation, education, outreach, fundraising, and law.
National Wildlife Federation interns work side-by-side with knowledgeable professionals and receive invaluable training, professional experience, and networking opportunities. In exchange, they bring new ideas, fresh perspectives, and motivation to the workplace.
Founded in 1936, the National Wildlife Federation is the nation's largest member-supported conservation organization, with seven field offices, a National Advocacy Center in Washington, D.C., and a headquarters office in Reston, Virginia.
The National Wildlife Federation provides extensive opportunities for professional development within its organization and beyond.
By encouraging innovative ideas and multicultural perspectives, the National Wildlife Federation provides a gateway through which you can launch an effective career in conservation and strengthen the environmental movement at the same time. Moreover, by diversifying our organization through the contributions of interns from a variety of backgrounds, the National Wildlife Federation (and ultimately the conservation community) is learning important lessons for making conservation relevant and effective in the 21st century.
The National Wildlife Federation aspires to be an inclusive, multicultural organization that celebrates the rich dimensions of diversity such as race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious, and political beliefs.
