Green Calgary is a local environmental charity that has been helping Calgarians green the way they live, work and play for over 40 years. Our work is about supporting everyone in Calgary (and the surrounding area) become better environmental stewards for the planet. We accomplish this through a multitude of programs, initiatives, and events. 

Our Eco Educator & Product Support Intern will work closely with our Eco Hub staff to support education on rain barrels, composters and other environmental products. They will also support store orders for environmental products, our green cleaning gift basket program, and help with our vermicomposting bin rental program (the worms need taking care of when they get back from being out in the field!) It's a tall order and this is one of our busiest seasons at Green Calgary. We have a small but mighty team and hope you’ll join us!  

You will need to be available during the day for the following dates and most other Saturdays although some weekdays (Wed or Friday afternoons may work too). Sat May 25, Sat June 8 and Sat June 22.

Ideal for someone with course work in:

  • Public Relations
  • Health, Safety and Environment
  • Adult and Community Education
  • Community Economic Development
  • Environmental Design

Some specialized skills required:

  • Great interpersonal skills and comfortable talking to the public and answering questions.
  • Super organized and detail oriented.
  • Can’t be squeamish about worms!
  • We’ll teach you lots but an understanding of Calgary’s recycling streams and composting is an asset.

What we will accomplish at the end of the Internship:

  • Educating customers on how to harvest rain effectively
  • Assisting in the sale of rain barrels
