STUDENTS CONSERVING AMERICA (SCA) OFFERS INTERNSHIPS

Thousands have joined SCA to launch a conservation career, advance their studies, or gain hands-on experience. But all had one thing in common: a genuine desire to conserve our natural world. Your skills, your knowledge, and your commitment can make a difference and SCA offers you virtually limitless opportunities to live the values you so strongly believe in. SCA also offers specific financial and academic benefits to its interns.

The SCA Roadshow

Every year our staff hits the road to let students all over the country know about SCA. If you'd like a more in-depth look at SCA from alumni who've been there, check out The SCA Roadshow to see when we'll be at a college or university near you!

Or to start looking for opportunities right now, just keep reading!

Internships

Conservation Internships are available in all 50 states and in dozens of conservation disciplines. Expenses are paid, the work is real, and the benefits to our world are undeniable. For opportunities starting in the immediate future, check out our weekly updated list of Staff Picks.

Conservation Corps Interns spend 3-10 months living and working with others on critical conservation projects such as restoring wilderness, building sustainable communities, and providing environmental education. Expenses are paid, the work and the friendships are real, and the benefits to our world are undeniable.

Jobs

Conservation Corps Project Leaders direct SCA interns on special initiatives such as wilderness restoration and GIS mapping. These are salaried staff positions that allow you to give back while getting ahead.

Crew Leader positions are also available, at competitive salaries, to trained people over 21 to lead summer crews of 6-8 high school students into frontcountry or backcountry trail work, habitat restoration and more in America’s national parks and forests.
