The Center for Coalfield Justice in Greene County, PA is seeking 1-2 students for the 2020 IAP period to work directly with communities on the frontlines of fossil fuel extraction. The paid internship will involve assisting our community-rooted organizers in producing resources that educate residents on the economic transition paths of other communities whose local economies have been dependent on fossil fuel extraction. Interns will have the opportunity to build upon previous MIT students’ research, tour the coalfields and work directly with impacted residents. The coalfields of Southwestern Pennsylvania are undergoing continued extraction, though depleting, all alongside increased oil and gas and petrochemical development. Through this internship, students interested in environmental justice can learn from those that are organizing from the frontlines.

Term: 2020 IAP period
Housing: Dorm housing provided through Washington & Jefferson College
