Additional Information

A Northwest Trek internship requires a commitment of a 24-40 hours/week for a period of 10-16 weeks. Some internships require a longer commitment (see individual descriptions for hourly and weekly requirements). An applicant must be at least 18 years of age, a college student or recent graduate, and flexible with his or her schedule - having the ability to work weekdays, weekends and holidays. All positions are unpaid. On-site housing opportunities may be available. Although Northwest Trek's intern program is not affiliated with an academic institution, Trek staff will work with interns to accommodate school requirements for those who are eligible to earn credit.
