Solar Outreach Internship

Spark Northwest is looking for a motivated, energetic person to present information at workshops and outreach events related to our solar programs in Yakima County. Primary support will be for the Solarize campaign in South Yakima County (Sunnyside, Grandview and Mabton.) There may be travel opportunities to conduct outreach in rural Oregon as well. The intern will work remotely with Seattle-based staff to engage Yakima County residents through marketing, outreach events, creation of public education materials, and direct collaboration with program partners. The intern will develop skills in community outreach and public speaking while gaining knowledge and hands on experience in the clean energy sector.
