Community Energy Partners: Growing Community Wind in Maine:

3-5 interns wanted for summer 2011 and possibly longer

Community Energy Partners is a Freeport, Maine-based consultancy dedicated bringing small-, medium-scale, and locally-owned community wind projects to communities throughout the Northeast, and is looking for as many as five (5) college interns for summer work (possibly continuing 2011-2012 school year). The workplan for this summer is fast-paced and demanding, but would be richly rewarding as in-depth, practical experience learning about wind generation, community wind ownership, and renewable energy policy in Maine and elsewhere in the U.S. This stipend-based position is highly selective and is designed to expand your knowledge, experience, and skill-set in the emerging field of community wind and renewable energy development and programming.

Maine is a national leader in supporting and showcasing community wind in its various forms–i.e., municipal wind, school-owned, farmer-owned, and small business-owned, to name a few of the existing examples. Recent legislation passed to help spur local ownership of wind and other renewable energy projects. New initiatives are in store to help community wind develop further in Maine.

Internship job description: to assist in all aspects of education and outreach on community wind in Maine.

This position will entail strong communication and writing skills, an out-going personality, and a passion for renewable energy. This is NOT an administrative assistant job. You will be expected to execute our program based on goals and deadlines, be accountable to senior leadership, be expected to meet and exceed expectations, but also be flexible to a fluid work environment.

Specific job duties:

1. Web Content and Social Media Management: Assist in all aspects of adding content to web-based platforms on community wind in Maine. This could entail a vast variety of experience, including: generating viral video and other media content, drafting and editing case studies, researching relevant issues and topics, compiling information and synthesizing it into short, easily-readable information suitable for a website, and drafting outreach materials.

2. Grassroots Outreach: Identifying, contacting, building, and empowering various stakeholders and partners through a wide-array of outreach tactics including mobilization, trainings, content generation, and in-person meetings.

3. Research and Communications: Conduct research into grants, foundations and other sources of funding for various initiatives related to community wind. Where possible, drafting and assisting in all aspects of managing grant applications.

4. Event Management: Assist in all aspects of managing live educational events (workshops, conferences, and trainings).

5. Administration: Where needed, complete general administrative tasks, and any other necessary tasks.

Compensation: Stipend of $500-1000 in total for 8 week part-time commitment (June–July 2011). With a demonstrated commitment and excellent work more work and compensation are available.

• Must be comfortable on the phone, including making outreach and “cold calls” (non-fundraising) enjoy “hands on” work (taking leadership over a project), and willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done. Must be willing to work flexible hours. Am looking for students with strong sense of “getting things done well, and done well the first time”. Am looking for students with leadership and project management experience.

CUNY School of Public Health:

My name is Lea Dias and I work for the Department of Health and Nutrition Sciences as a program coordinator for the Matters in Public Health. I am in the process of revising our recruitment and informational materials and realized, in no time, that I would need the assistant of some gifted digital artist to help me with this project.

I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction in getting an intern who would be interested in the challenge. This would be a precious opportunity for a student to put together a portfolio while working right here at our campus.

Please let me know if this is a possibility, and if so, who I should contact next. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you,

lcdias [AT] brooklyn [DOT] cuny [DOT] edu nursing video in Augusta:

We are looking for a UMO media student who might be interested in traveling to Augusta to do some videography work for our organization.  We are looking for a student who has experience working with video equipment and who would be available for 2 full days (1 day on May 23rd and 1 day during the week of June 19) in order to help us with taping a training video for nurses.  The video will be a training about how to implement 2 screening tools used to identify children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. 

We would pay the student’s travel expenses, provide lunch and pay the student a stipend.  We do not have video equipment, so the student would need to be able to provide the equipment.  Do you have any students in mind who might be interested in working with us?  If so, would you be able to provide them with my contact information (below)  and ask them to get in touch with me ASAP?  We are hoping find a videographer within the next week.  Any assistance you can provide us would be greatly appreciated.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions. 

Thank you!!
