May 16 – July 12, 2019 The  John Marshall  Everglades Internship Program invites qualified undergraduate students to learn all aspects of the Everglades restoration project through this 8-week in-depth Everglades experience. Interns learn all aspects of the Everglades from ecology to policy. They meet and speak with several stakeholders from different components of Everglades restoration in an effort to learn about the inner workings and complications of the project while building a strong contacts network. There are several field trips to natural areas providing hands-on exposure to all parts of the Everglades ecosystem. Additionally, the interns shadow an Everglades Foundation mentor completing   specific projects   and assignments in one of the following categories: Science and Engineering, Policy and Advocacy, Education, and Digital Communications.  2019 John Marshall Everglades Internship Capstone Project Examples: Science Communications Intern (2 openings): 1) Manage the creation of the Science Insider Magazine. The intern manages, edits, and coordinates the projection of this science based magazine used to promote the good work of the Foundation’s science team. An example of last year’s Science Insider can be found here: https://bit.ly/2FqH0J0   2) Creation of educational factsheets. The intern will research facts on endangered species, invasive species, and commonly found species in the Everglades wetlands. S/he will create and design factsheets to be used in informational booklets passed out on tours and other outreach events. Education Intern (1 opening): 1) Develop a multi-tiered approach for delivering Everglades instructional programming to K-12 STEM/STEAM Partners. School-community partnerships are agreements between an organization, and a school or school district to work together to enhance education. The Foundation has partnerships with 20+ schools in Miami-Dade County, where at least four different visits are needed for the partnership: 1) Teacher Training; 2) Classroom Presentation; 3) Science Night; and 4) Other (Special Project/Event). The intern will help enhance this aspect of our program by developing a series of new Everglades related classroom presentations for different grade levels. Policy and Science Digital Communications Intern (1 opening): 1) Create and distribute all John Marshall Everglades Summer Internship promotional pieces. The intern will be charged with documenting through pictures and videos all aspects of the internship program. S/he will write weekly blogs, articles for the monthly newsletter and quarterly Glades Guardian. Additionally, the intern will create a video depicting their internship experience to be promoted on the Foundation’s website.
