Job opportunity

Become an Environment America Fellow: Fight for a green future. Learn what it takes to win.

My name is Hanna Terwilliger.  I’m the Clean Energy Associate at Environment Minnesota.  We’re a statewide citizen based environmental advocacy group.  We’re about clean energy, clean air, clean water, and protecting open spaces – for example, right now we’re working hard to stop industrial agricultural pollution from harming our rivers and lakes. And, we’re hiring!

To learn more and apply, visit Our early application deadline is Sunday, March 2nd. We’ll also be at the Minnesota Private Colleges Jobs and Internship Fair on February 19th!

Environment Minnesota is part of the Environment America federation, a federation of 29 state-based groups with nearly 100 professional staff and more than 1 million members, activists and allies across the country.

Each year, we hire graduating seniors with the passion, the commitment and the talent it takes to stand up to polluting industries, fight for a green future and do what it takes to win.

Our Fellowship Program is a two-year crash course in the nuts and bolts of environmental activism, organizing, advocacy and the type of institution-building that can sustain long-term battles.

As a fellow, you’re not just learning how to make an impact; you’re making one. If you want to hear more straight from our current fellows, we put together a short video for you. You’ll find it on our website here.

After two years as a fellow, you’ll have learned the ropes, gained invaluable hands-on experience and you’ll have made a real difference for the environment.  Hear from two former fellows about the work they're doing now to fight fracking here.

To learn more and apply, visit Our early application deadline is Sunday, February 16th.

And if you’re not graduating this year, you should apply to be an Environment Minnesota intern – you’ll learn how to make an impact on critical environmental issues, and there’s no better way to get the experience to launch your career with us.

I look forward to hearing from you!

PS- you can help us protect Minnesota waterways right now by signing our petition to Governor Dayton to limit pollution from big agribusiness.
