The Climate Museum in NYC is the first museum in the US dedicated to climate change and climate solutions. Learn more about us at climatemuseum.org.

The Climate Museum is seeking a college or graduate student intern to join our team of climate ambassadors for the fall of 2021. Our mission is to inspire action on the climate crisis with programming across the arts and sciences that deepens understanding, builds connections, and advances just solutions.

The position will begin remotely and transition to in-person in Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. This is an unpaid internship with an option for college credit if your school allows it.

The Museum is currently scaling out to a permanent, year-round presence in NYC. In its public programming to date, it has created an activist cultural approach to community engagement with climate, recognizing that most Americans are worried about the climate crisis but unsure how to take meaningful action. The Museum’s free, accessible exhibitions, art installations, advocacy tools, events, youth programs, and more have touched tens of thousands of New Yorkers and visitors and received extensive recognition, broadening the climate movement with an emphasis on community, justice, equity, and inclusion. Programs are presented at the Museum’s exhibition hub on Governors Island, in parks, galleries, and other venues citywide and, in 2020-2021, through virtual events. Additional information is available at climatemuseum.org.

This internship presents the opportunity to play a generative role in a fast-paced, evolving organization. Interns will carry out tasks in an intellectually vibrant and supportive environment within a culture centered around respect and inclusion.
