Artists for Africa - Internship

Artists for Africa Intern
with African Rainforest Conservancy


Based in New York City, the African Rainforest Conservancy (ARC) works closely with its field partner the Tanzania Forest Conservation Group (TFCG) to support a network of 146 villages in eight mountain and coastal regions throughout Tanzania that are protecting 250,000 acres of forest – an area over 300 times New York’s Central Park. With a focus on grassroots conservation and community development, current projects include tree planting, fuel-efficient cook stoves, environmental education, and alternative income generation.
The ideal candidate will be a recent college graduate or current undergraduate/graduate student with a strong interest in contributing to ARC’s overall mission. This is a part-time unpaid internship, requiring an average of 10-15 hours a week. A travel stipend to cover local transportation costs will be provided. Some work can be done off site and outside of normal business hours. We are looking for someone to start in late September and stay with us through February 2012 (exact dates and hours are flexible).
