EPEC is proud to mentor youth starting careers related to facilitating citizen science programs. Because of the small size of our organization, interns get the opportunity to work one-on-one with the Program Director and Executive Director to see the whole picture of running a small non-profit organization, and internship dates and expectations can be tailored to meet the needs of interns. Generally, academic-year interns work 1-2 days per week from September to May and summer interns work full-time for a minimum of 5 weeks. Essential functions of interns are to assist in data collection and management, facilitation of programs with schools and other organizations, and to ensure that the office operates smoothly. Interns may become mentors themselves, training others in ecological monitoring protocols. Some background in environmental science or related field is needed, but enthusiasm in the EPEC mission is most essential for applicants. Housing in Estes Park may be available but is not guaranteed. If you are interested in becoming our next Citizen Science Volunteer Intern, please email a resume and cover letter to Charlotte Mason, Educational Outreach & Programs Director
