  • Curate and share existing resources on systems thinking in ways that are engaging and accessible
  • Coordinate with staff and partners on the planning and organizing of program activities

  • Gain experience in grant writing, web maintenance, the workings of a nonprofit, systems thinking, system leadership

The summer part-time position will run ten weeks, between June and August. The intern will work up to 25 hours/week from our office in downtown Norwich, just across the river from Dartmouth.
