Details/Description

The Grassroots Leadership Intern will work on the GRN’s public outreach and community involvement activities. Gulf Restoration Network conducts grassroots outreach at events across New Orleans and the Gulf, including the Arts Market of New Orleans, Freret Market, the Poboy Festival, and the Voodoo Experience. We train volunteer advocates on the critical environmental issues here in the Gulf and on conducting outreach to the public. Our advocates do the critical work of engaging the public in the fight for a healthy Gulf, and the Grassroots Leadership Internship offers a motivated student the opportunity to become a driving force in grassroots organizing and public environmental education in New Orleans.
