Internship Opportunities

The Sierra Club, San Diego Chapter, offers opportunities for academic internships* in San Diego and Imperial counties. Our conservation program is involved in a wide range of issues including air quality, water quality, urban planning, transportation planning, forest and wilderness legislation and protection, education, wildlife, parks, recycling, energy production and regulation, Mexican border issues, and much more.

We are looking for self-starting individuals who are engaged in an academic program in a field of study that is compatible with Sierra Club goals and objectives. Volunteering for the Club is exciting, and rewarding!

The Sierra Club is an 800,000 member non-profit organization founded by John Muir in 1892. The San Diego Chapter has over 17,000 members, with offices and bookstore located in the San Diego community of North Park.

Review our list of focus groups and campaigns (see left-side menu), then contact the appropriate person on our contact sheet to discuss internship possibilities.

To apply for an internship, send your resume and cover letter describing which volunteer project you are interested in via email to rmiller@sierraclubsandiego.org.
