Communications Intern

Our Children's Trust

The communications intern will work as an integral part of the communications team during a very important time for Our Children's Trust. The organization represents youth from around the country suing their government, at the state and federal levels, for contributing to climate change. On October 29, the well-known Juliana v. US lawsuit, filed by 21 young Americans against the federal government, will go to trial in Eugene, OR. The trial will last 8-10 weeks. 


The communications team is busy developing a communications strategy to build momentum around the Trial of the Century and around the brave youth plaintiffs. With highly refined written and verbal communication skills, experience on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, and excellent time management, the communications intern will be a crucial part of the continued development of that strategy, as well as it's implementation and execution throughout trial and beyond. Candidates for this internship must be deeply passionate about solving the climate crisis, work well as part of a team, and be able to think outside of the box. 


The schedule for the communications internship is flexible, with the option to work onsite or remotely, or a combination of both. The intern's duties and responsibilities can be honed to best fit his/her interests and education needs. 

Internship is unpaid.
