NEIWPCC Lowell/Lawrence, MA, USA
Feb 05, 2020Part time
NEIWPCC is a regional commission that helps the states of the Northeast preserve and advance water quality. We engage and convene water quality professionals and other interested parties from New England and New York to collaborate on water, wastewater, and environmental science challenges across the regions, ecosystems, and areas of expertise. NEIWPCC is seeking two summer interns to coordinate its EPA-funded Youth and the Environment Program (YEP), as well as other NEIWPCC Wastewater Division projects in Lowell and Lawrence, MA. By offering summer employment with hands-on experience, YEP encourages disadvantaged inner city students to develop interests in the environment and potential environmental careers. The YEP Coordinator is an important component of the program. The Youth and the Environment Coordinators will work under the general supervision of the Information Officer for the Wastewater and Onsite Systems Division at NEIWPCC to coordinate logistics for the youth summer job programs, develop lesson plans for the afternoon sessions, coordinate periodic environmental field trips, and coordinate transportation of the students to the local wastewater and drinking water treatment plants every morning. In addition to coordinating YEP, the interns may also support other Wastewater activities including our Massachusetts Wastewater Operator Training program and the Massachusetts Title 5 Soil Evaluator Certification training program. The successful candidates must have a minimum of 2 years towards a bachelor’s degree in environmental science, biology, or closely related field. Candidates will be expected to work 30 hours per week, with some flexibility; position anticipated to begin mid-May or early June and to extend through the summer.
