Description

The Education & Communications Fellowship is a unique opportunity to build upon your education and communications background through the legacy of Aldo Leopold. Working side-by-side with experienced staff members, fellows will build a wide array of skills needed to contribute to, conduct, and manage education programs at non-profit conservation organizations through firsthand experience in visitor services, program planning, program marketing, and program delivery. Fellows will also gain experience in mission-based communications to a variety of strategic audiences both in-person and across digital platforms. Visitation and programming vary throughout the year, allowing for both periods of high visitor interaction and times of behind-the-scenes work in the office. Fellows will have opportunities to interact with both a diverse range of conservation professionals and the Leopold family, who play active roles in guiding and executing the foundation’s mission.

The Aldo Leopold Foundation seeks applicants who have recently completed their bachelor’s degree in an environmental studies, marketing and communications, environmental education, or natural-resources related field. Applicants should have excellent communication skills, demonstrated leadership capabilities, and a passion for learning about and executing educational programs for non-profit conservation organizations. Applicants should also be willing and able to lead programs while hiking (1 mile plus) outdoors in all weather and insect conditions. All applicants must be eligible to work in the United States at the time they apply and have a valid driver’s license. Fellows must commit full-time to the entire 12-month program. Virtual information sessions in December-January. Applications are due 2/1. 40 hours a week at $11/hour. 40 hours of vacation, 48 hours of sick leave, and 48 hours of floating holiday. Gear stipend and free housing is provided on campus in the Future Leaders Center. More at: https://www.aldoleopold.org/join-support/employment/
