is seaside a good fit for you?  

We are looking for part-time interns in high school, college and beyond to work 6-20 hours a week on a diverse and challenging array of projects and initiatives. Our interns engage in focused learning experiences where they receive guidance and resources to apply knowledge and skills to their emerging professional lives.  We are accepting applications for unpaid internships, with hours available any day of the week and practically any time of day: weekdays, weekends, and evenings included.  We prefer to have our local interns work in person at the office in Rockport, and we also invite interns from all over the United States and internationally to apply.    

Interested in joining our passionate & dedicated entrepreneurial team? 


 Donated Office Space--We are incredibly lucky to have this incredible office space provided to us by Mike Beaton and Remax at the Coast.  Located in Rockport,  MA, this office makes it possible for us to house our internship program, with interns coming and going throughout the week, weekends included!

Location

Interns will work in our office at 45 Broadway Rockport, MA. (The office is a different location than our permanent mailing address, PO Box 131 Gloucester, MA 01931.) 

Academic Credit & Service Hours Fulfillment

We at Seaside work alongside colleges, universities and schools to provide students with the resources and opportunities to meet any program requirements for accredited internship requirements and service hours.  We will assist interns in creating learning goals that align with the internship duties and provide written documentation of work performed, recommendations, and evaluations for students.  

The span of majors Seaside can accommodate for its interns alone is impressive and makes the opportunity applicable to just about anyone. However, it is the relationships made, the energy and enthusiasm from the team, and the important work done that will make me tell anyone to give it a shot.
— Intern Molly Jones

College Majors Suited

Students that will find success and enjoyment in an intern role with Seaside Sustainability include those with majors and/or interests in Business Administration, Entrepreneurship, Accounting, Marketing, Liberal Studies, Writing, Journalism, Education (especially non-traditional, non-classroom), Environmental Studies (wide spectrum), Adventure Education, Outdoor Leadership, or Digital Communication & Multimedia, though all majors and interests are welcome and encouraged to apply!   


are you a good fit for seaside?

Many of Seaside's initiatives are in the start-up phase, while others have been in progress for a while.  We work on a wide array of local, regional and national programs and initiatives which create real world entrepreneurial problem-solving opportunities that are interesting, diverse and stimulating!  Our interns are never bored because they’re given REAL and MEANINGFUL work. All internships are led by educators that allow interns to be hands on and explore what they want which makes Seaside unique from other internships.   

Interns will not be limited to just one role; we encourage each intern to take advantage of the opportunity to explore a variety of roles & responsibilities.

3.   Work will be available throughout the period of the internship such that Seaside interns will be able to structure their schedule around individual or school/work program needs.

 

4.   Supervision will be provided by our organization's directors, of whom are professionals with educational backgrounds and expertise in their fields.

 

 

5.  Formative evaluation will be practiced throughout the experience; feedback is an essential component to any team dynamic, interns will practice not only receiving, but also how to give constructive feedback. We will provide interns with constructive feedback & guidance to refine interns' knowledge & skill base as well as goals & accomplishments.

 

I am very glad I worked in the office. Not only do I think I would’ve been less productive remotely, but I believe there is great value to working in the same proximity with your peers.”
— Intern EJ Kelly
The guidance from Eric was perfect. A lot of time I was left to my own devices to work on something, but everyone was always available to check in or answer questions.”
— Intern Josh Sheridan

While attending Gordon on the North Shore of Boston, my appreciation for our coast has increased.  Interning for Seaside has provided me an opportunity to combine my passion towards saving our oceans and environment, with my love for Communications and Business. I am further developing my Marketing and Communication skills as I participate in many of this company's sustainability projects. Every task I do is real world experience that I can bring into a future workplace.

    I am a sophomore at Endicott College studying a dual major in Business Marketing and Management. Growing up in a coastal town I have spent many hours outside and on my boat. I have always been passionate about environmental work and have spent many hours volunteering my time to work on sustainable efforts. In high school I was the vice president of a school wide sustainable program that made us one of the greenest schools in the country. I choose Seaside because of their mission and idea and my ability to have a hands-on experience during my internship.

  Nadia Blayer   Millerburg, PA   Gordon College, English & Creative Writing   I have had the privilege to spend the last three years studying and exploring various means of using the written word to promote advocacy, build relationships, and learn about the pieces of the world I will never personally encounter. Raising awareness of local opportunities to make an impact is a passion of mine and I am excited to get the chance to work at Seaside Sustainability where personal growth and environmental advocacy are highly valued. After undergrad, I plan to pursue my Master’s in Publishing at Emerson and eventually move to the West Coast to be with all of the big trees.

So, I’m looking forward to being a part of SS team and making sure to adding a value to their work.

I am very interested in the subject of sustainability. I believe Seaside sustainability is an amazing opportunity to get involved locally, and to help inform others on the current rising problems within our community. I am interested in studying environmental sciences and Engineering in the future, and I know that Seaside Sustainability will allow me to explore my interests and apply them later in life.
