Job Description:
Clean Water Action is a non-profit organization with 250,000 members in Michigan working to empower people to take action to protect America's waters, build healthy communities and to make democracy work for all of us. For 45 years Clean Water Action has succeeded in winning some of the nation's most important environmental protections through grassroots organizing, expert policy research and political advocacy focused on holding elected officials accountable to the public.

Our grassroots organizing team speaks to Michigan residents about Michigan issues, informing and educating the public, building support and channeling that support into action. We work on a wide variety of issues, but are currently focusing our efforts on:

- Water Access: Ensure that all communities have lead-free drinking water systems, and access to clean drinking water 100% of the time

- Great Lakes Protections: Reduce the flow of sewage and storm water pollution into the Great Lakes

- Environmental Justice: Ensure that our lowest income neighborhoods and most vulnerable populations are not disproportionately burdened by negative environmental impacts.

Responsibilities of internships include:

- Identifying voters and volunteers who will work with us to hold politicians accountable for their votes on environmental and health related issues

- Ensuring, by grassroots organizing and fundraising, that communities are made aware of these issues and given the tools to participate in the solutions

- Participating in press conferences, lobby days, and other events.

We look for candidates who have strong oral and written communication skills, and who possess good attention to detail. Candidates should have an interest in environmental or social justice issues, non-profit work, or politics. We do provide extensive training on the job responsibilities and on the issues we cover. 

From this opportunity, you will receive extensive training on environmental issues including regular seminars, training in the legislative process and the political arena, and you will develop strong communication and organizational skills. You will be working as part of a highly motivated and dedicated team who are interested in your personal development. There are also opportunities for future permanent positions and career development, along with opportunities for travel to other offices across the country.

We are currently seeking students to work with us full or part time for the spring and/or summer semesters, or longer term. Hours are at least 3 days a week (between Monday and Friday), from 2pm to 10:30pm.  Pay is $85 - 109/day.  This internship could potentially be used for class credit as well, depending on the requirements of the school or program.
