Green and Prosperous is a Maryland-based online business and blog that promotes green living and healthier lifestyles through food gardening/homesteading, minimizing your exposure to harmful chemicals, and supporting the work of environmental advocacy groups and small-scale farmers. Founded and operated by Kelly Pemberton, Ph.D., an environmental activist and professor at the George Washington University in Washington, D.C., Green & Prosperous offers online classes, books, a library of free resources, and other tips and tools to empower consumers and environmental advocates.
Dr. Pemberton is now accepting resumes from graduate and undergraduate students interested in interning with Green and Prosperous remotely. Depending on each student’s interests and skills plus our organizational needs, interns assist with a variety of tasks including research and writing, outreach to farmers/farmer advocates and environmental groups, website and social media communications, photo and video recording and/or editing, and developing promotional campaigns.
The internship tentatively begins this fall and ends in mid-December 2021, with some accommodation for earlier/later start and/or end as needed. During this period, interns must be able to commit a total of 8-10 hours/week consisting of:
1. A weekly 30-60-minute videoconference meeting with Dr. Pemberton to review work completed and discuss new assignments.
2. Between 7 and 9.5 hours of independent work completed each week.
This internship is unpaid but offers substantive resume-building experience in starting and growing an online business, and a formal reference and/or recommendation letter upon request given satisfactory performance.
THE INTERNS WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
Applicants should be interested in business, communications, health, nutrition, agriculture and/or the environment. Applicants should be organized, detail-oriented, motivated and punctual. Demonstrated skill in building an online audience using social media, photo and video editing, and/or writing is a plus.
