We offer an internship program within WCC called the Individual Placement (IP) Program. These are typically limited to 12-month positions. IPs serve natural resource organizations throughout the state of Washington. They assist biologists, foresters, environmental educators and more. IPs perform the following types of projects:

  • Engaging in environmental research
  • Creating outreach materials to recruit volunteers for environmental projects and/or inform the public about environmental topics
  • Assisting with monitoring projects
  • Designing restoration projects

Because of the technical nature of these positions, a college degree is preferred, but not required. Candidates accepting one of these positions will be committing to a full year of AmeriCorps service. Transfer to other WCC positions for IP members will not be approved.
