Interns at a rally

Interns are a crucial part of our work protecting the Appalachian region. Our internships are known for providing students with a thorough and rewarding experience of working in the day-to-day operations of a nonprofit campaign.

Internships can be completed for academic credit through an approved school program, or for extra work experience without academic ties. There is no stipend provided for internships, however Appalachian Voices will reimburse pre-approved expenses associated with the internship, such as travel. At the completion of the internship, the intern will receive a complimentary one-year membership to Appalachian Voices, and letters of recommendation will be available upon request.

Below is a list of our current internships with links to full position descriptions. We also welcome suggestions for other internships that might fit our current needs and work. If you think you have something to offer our organization outside of this list, let us know! Email with any questions.

We are not accepting internship applications at this time. Please check back soon!
