MAEOE released the 2012 Spring Maryland Green Schools Internship Program yesterday after much demand from local undergraduate students.
MAEOE is seeking at least ten interns for the Spring 2012 semester to work throughout Maryland. The goal of this program is to encourage hands on experience, increase awareness of environmental issues and introduce students to Maryland’s diverse environmental programs.
The interns will work directly will schools working towards MAEOE Maryland Green School Certification, a two year process for schools which culminates with an application documenting the school’s activities in the environment as a context for learning, teacher professional development, best management practices and community stewardship. The program is open to all Maryland public and private K-12 schools and the internship is open to all current higher education students. Applicants should have a demonstrated interest in the areas of education, environmental education and/or environmental science. Internships will be during the Spring 2012 semester with orientation and training in early February. Days and times are flexible; MAEOE will work to assist interns to receive course credit with their school if possible. This is a field experience internship and positions vary throughout Maryland, not at the Jessup headquarters office. Details: http://www.maeoe.org/about/employment.php
