Becca Strelitz Internship Program
“I absolutely adore the organization and everyone who works for it. Thanks again for giving a crazy kid a chance. You opened so many doors for me and helped me accomplish so many things that I’ll never forget.” – Becca Strelitz
The conservation community lost one of its most dynamic members when Becca Strelitz passed away in June 2015. Becca was an intern with Conservation Colorado in 2011 and over time became one of our best and brightest community organizers. Her unmitigated passion for the cause gave her a powerful ability to connect with others and motivate them to act. We are honored to continue her legacy through our internship program.
Protecting our environment means preserving what we love about Colorado. For over 50 years, we’ve worked to protect our environment and quality of life across the state, with an increasing focus on communities of color and low-income communities who have borne the brunt of environmental injustice for too long. We strive to elect pro-conservation leaders and hold them accountable to protect our environment and people.
Our work to advocate for the environment reflects the organization’s commitment to racial, social, and environmental justice. As a paid intern, you’ll join a team committed to preserving Colorado. In your role, you may be asked to bring community members to speak with decision-makers, use data to engage our members, share updates on social media, lobby, organize events, fundraise, and more to help us win on our campaigns. We welcome diversity and can adjust position requirements to match the needs of applicants when necessary.
