What Past Interns Say…

“As an intern for the Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation (CRF), I gained invaluable insight into the inner-workings of an environmental nonprofit and firsthand experience collaborating with community partners, planning and executing events, and managing the social media channels.  I thoroughly enjoyed my time working with the wonderful CRF staff and always felt like a contributing member of the team throughout the duration of the summer. I highly recommend the Marketing and Development Internship for anyone looking for experience in non-profit management, community outreach, and social media marketing!”
– Monika Dammann, George Mason University, Summer 2019 Marketing and Development Intern

“As a Riverkeeper intern, I was exposed to a variety of opportunities that gave me great insight into the types of roles members of an environmental non-profit team play. Although working with a lot of data throughout the summer, this was broken up by a good amount of field work where in-office research was put to use. I finished the summer with a breadth of knowledge in both field, lab, and office work that will be invaluable in the future. I would highly recommend this internship for individuals who are looking for experience in field work, environmental data management, or GIS work. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at CRF, both because of the meaningful work I was doing and the helpful and welcoming staff at the organization.”
– CJ Triana, Queens University, Summer 2018 Riverkeeper Program Intern

Throughout my summer with the Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation, I learned so much about non-profit organizations and our waterways, all while gaining invaluable business experience that will help me work toward my future career goals. I feel more confident in design, social media, and community outreach after working as the Marketing and Development Intern. I couldn’t recommend this internship enough, as it has been a great experience for me and the other interns!”

 UNC Chapel Hill, Summer 2018 Marketing and Development Intern

“These past two summers I have had the honor to work with the Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation. I have learned more about the management of nonprofits, outreach programs, and publicity strategies than I thought I ever would from an internship. As an Environmental Studies undergrad, the connections, relationships, and skills I have acquired are unparalleled. CRF is an incredibly hard working organization, devoted to the well-being of our waterways, lakes, and rivers.”
