Are you passionate about fighting climate change, addressing environmental harms, or advancing a cleaner, greener, more sustainable world? Have you wondered whether your studies, skills and experiences could help you get a job working on these issues? If this describes you, keep reading for a great opportunity this summer to get your foot in the door and explore jobs making a positive impact – without needing an engineering or science degree.
The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (“MassCEC”) seeks to increase diversity within the Commonwealth’s clean energy workforce and create career pathways for Massachusetts college and clean energy certificate students that lead to greater economic stability. In doing so, MassCEC is interested in ensuring students of color are exposed to career pathways and opportunities in clean energy.
All In Energy is a nonprofit with a mission to accelerate an inclusive clean energy economy. We are partnered with the MassCEC to recruit students of color for internships with clean energy companies and environmental nonprofits during the summer 2021 cohort of the MassCEC Clean Energy Internship Program.
These paid positions are funded by the MassCEC. To participate in the program, candidates must either attend, or have graduated within the past year, from a Massachusetts college or university or they must be a Massachusetts resident with proof of residency who attended an out-of-state college or university. Students pursuing a master’s degree are eligible for this program, though Ph.D. candidates are not. For more information on the MassCEC Internship Program visit www.masscec.com/clean-energy-internship-program. (The program is still open!)

- Marketing and Communications
- Organizing and Outreach

Most of these positions have in person and remote working options. A partial list of organizations offering these positions is below.
