Become a part of the solution: Join the Change is Simple team
Change is Simple is an environmental education nonprofit that uses hands-on lessons to show students their impact on the planet and their community. Change is Simple welcomes college students to participate in our mentor/internship program. For our mentors, every day is different, but every day is fun! We provide a fresh and energetic take on teaching about our planet and how to protect it. We believe that passionate individuals will fuel the recovery of our earth.

Since we are a smaller non-profit organization, our interns are encouraged to take a part in many aspects of the business. One day, you could help build a 6 foot tall wind turbine, and the next day, you could be helping to write a grant. Internships with Change is Simple are a great way to develop and explore skills in areas you might not be exposed to in other settings. In the classroom, mentors are encouraged to explore and find their own teaching style, and are given opportunities to take over and lead individual lessons. Most mentors have expressed an increased confidence in public speaking and communication skills. Mentors develop their skills creating, delivering, and evaluating lesson curriculum and learning tools.
Mentor positions are available year-round and applications are accepted on a rolling basis. The length of the mentorship depends on you! We typically host mentors for either 120 hours, a single semester, or up to a 6 month period. Summer and winter break are also available.
Most mentors are hired as assistant environmental educators, but our organization believes that everyone has something to offer. Change is Simple welcomes individuals who do not possess an education or environmental background.
Our office is small, our team is like a family, and everything we do is naturally full of energy and laughter. A mentorship with Change is Simple will allow you to learn more about the environment, become an active member in the community, and develop your communication and speaking skills, among other things.
