Safe Harbor's Intern Program offers a wide range of opportunities for continuing education and participation in our interdisciplinary Coastal Restoration projects.

The goal of our 2019 Intern Program is to provide appropriate, supportive experiences for our interns to gain a sense of relevance by developing communication, thinking and risk assessment skills for effective environmental decision making.
— Gordon Peabody, Director

Interns should have reasonably developed skills: taking and using notes; communications; organization; basic computer programs; understanding proper dress for weather; multi-tasking; and tracking details. Interns are expected to complete the Basic Orientation Program and continue their educational growth through Safe Harbor's publications and Seminars. The Intern position is a part time, paid position. We have no restrictions for work experience, age or educational background but there are limited openings for Interns. We set up flexible, part time schedules and Interns are assigned a Mentor to provide ongoing support.

How will our Intern Program help you grow?

What should Interns be prepared for?

College Credit: We have created an educational partnership with Cape Cod Community College, allowing Interns to receive College Credit for their work with us. Contact Catherine Etter, who is coordinating their Intern Program.
