Summer Jobs for the Environment
Environment New Jersey is hiring students to work on our campaigns this summer in New Jersey. We're looking for folks that are hardworking, good communicators, and committed to making positive change.
This summer our top campaign is saving the bees! To sign up to learn more click here. This has been a problem for over a decade, but now bee keepers are reporting losing on average a third of bee populations each year. This is a huge environmental and economic issue, because bees pollinate everything from strawberries to coffee, and even the food that dairy animals eat which give us ice cream and cheese. One cause of this issue is that bees have increasingly exposed to a class of insecticides called neonicotinoids, which are powerful neurotoxins. That's why we are working to push the Environmental Protection Agency to speed up the testing on neonics, and to eventually ban the use of these toxins. But to do that, we need to demonstrate the public's support. To win this campaign, we are hiring folks to get out into communities, and build support for this issue based out of our New Brunswick office. Over the course of the summer you can expect to make between $4,000-$6,000 and make $10-$15/HR. It's a great way to build your resume, like an internship, but you get paid.
