Youth and the Environment Intern
New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission (NEIWPCC) is seeking two summer interns to coordinate its EPA-funded Youth and the Environment Program (YEP), as well as other NEIWPCC Wastewater Division projects in Lowell and Lawrence MA.
By offering summer employment with hands-on experience, YEP encourages disadvantaged inner city students to develop interests in the environment and potential environmental careers. The YEP Coordinator is an important component of the program. The Youth and the Environment Coordinators will work under the general supervision of the Environmental Analyst for the Wastewater and Onsite Systems Division at NEIWPCC to coordinate logistics for the youth summer job programs, develop lesson plans for the afternoon sessions, coordinate periodic environmental field trips, and coordinate transportation of the students to the wastewater treatment plants every morning. In addition to the YEP, the interns may also support other Wastewater activities including our Massachusetts Wastewater Operator Training program and the Massachusetts Title 5 Soil Evaluator Certification training program.
The successful candidates must have a minimum of 2 years towards a bachelor’s degree in environmental science, biology, or closely related field. Candidates will be expected to work 30 hours per week, with some flexibility; position anticipated to begin mid-May and to extend through the summer.
