CEP - Our Story

 

The Climate + Energy Project is a statewide nonprofit working diligently toward a sustainable energy future in Kansas. CEP interns play a vital role in this ambitious undertaking: from researching latest developments in renewable energy and energy efficiency, volunteering to help at events, helping share important updates through social media and website, to being our boots on the ground at the statehouse.

 

CEP Interns either help on a specific project or assist with CEP activities more broadly. All interns can expect to help out at events, post on social media, and write blogs to help us stay connected with our audience.

 

While internships are unpaid, we feel the exposure and knowledge you will gain to be invaluable.
