Forterra is looking for a team of young people, aged 18-26, who would be available 10 hours a week from September through mid-November. A $700 stipend will be awarded at the end of the internship, or in two $350 amounts (at the mid-point and at the end).
Three interns will work as a team to help with outreach and event planning for a series of fun, community tree-planting events throughout the Puget Sound Region (the biggest being Green Seattle Day on November 8th, but also working on events in Everett, Redmond, and Tacoma). The work will emphasize increasing our outreach to and connections with a more diverse volunteer population than we typically see in traditional environmental programming, and as such we hope to recruit interns who can help make our efforts more inclusive by engaging their own communities.
