Internships

Interships
TreeFolks has projects available for interns the summer and fall of 2016. Each project will last between four and six weeks. Unfortunately we are unable to offer financial support, but we will offer a pleasant work environment and fun excursions. We are out in the country, far from public transportation, so a car is necessary just to get to our office. To apply, please send a resume and cover letter to jobs@treefolks.org.
