Summer Internship – Apply Now!

Northern Forest Canoe Trail (NFCT) is now accepting applications for its 2009 Internship Program.  The NFCT, based in Waitsfield, Vermont, stewards a 740-mile canoe route traversing New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. 

Link to our 2009 Internships page for applications and more details.

Five interns will be hired this summer:

3 Stewardship Interns will spend their summer in the field, completing trail projects alongside area land managers and community volunteers.  Projects will include campsite maintenance, river access improvements, and signage development.  Interns will play a key role in preparing for and leading a series of volunteer "waterway" work trips throughout the summer in New York, Vermont, Quebec, New Hampshire, and Maine.

The Program Intern will assist NFCT staff with the wide variety of activities that happen in the busy Waitsfield, Vermont office.  The Program Intern will participate in the running of a small non-profit during our busiest season, pitching in on a variety of tasks.

The Youth Program Intern will help coordinate and lead NFCT’s Northern Forest Explorers Youth Program.  The Youth Program Intern will be working with children age 10-14 in a program developed to connect rural youth with their backyard waterways.

Academic credit can be arranged, and a $1200 stipend will be provided.
