Internships are designed to engage youth and young adults in valuable work experiences within natural resources management agencies and non-profits. Interns are recruited and managed by RMYC to address priority conservation goals in partnership with the United States Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the National Park Service, the Colorado Youth Corps Association, the National Forest Foundation, the Colorado Fourteeners Initiative and a growing circle of additional agency and non-profit partners. Internships allow participants to consider or advance careers and education in natural resources. RMYC provides support to all internships while the intern works under the daily supervision of the hosting public lands management agency, or non-profit. Please refer to position descriptions for each internship type below.
Feedback From Past Interns
Many of our interns are able to use these opportunities as a spring board for direct hires with governmental agencies and other conservation-minded careers.
