The Eco Leaders program recruits highly motivated and interested student interns from a variety of educational backgrounds who desire to support and learn more about our mission to permanently connect, protect and restore the Florida Wildlife Corridor. Interns have the opportunity to serve during the fall, spring, and summer sessions. In special cases, interns can serve an entire year and will be dedicated to serve support on a special project. Interns are expected to serve a min of 20 hours per week and will be required to track and report their work hours on a weekly basis. The hours of service are flexible but may require some weekends, travel and evenings for FWCF events. They will learn about current policies and protections, advocacy opportunities and the many best practices currently protecting the Corridor. Eco leaders work with our communications, outreach, administrative and development teams to learn more about our processes as well as share ideas and bring innovation to our teams’ current strategies. Our current opportunities are non-paid internships offering credit worthy experiences for students seeking professional development and specific career aligned skillsets. Eco Leaders are immersed in the daily tasks of our teams as well as assigned special projects to support their communication skills, time management strategies, problem solving, as well as increase their exposure to professional networks within their field of study. Stipends, research assistantships and scholarships may be available through college programs.
