Did you know that each year Trees, Water & People has over 100 volunteers and interns who help with our program and administrative tasks? In 2012, more than 5,200 hours of their time, talent, and expertise were donated.
Volunteers and interns contribute in a number of different ways, some of which include stuffing mail, drafting grant proposals, translating documents, working in our garden, conducting research, assisting with outreach at local events, and participating in on site projects like the Solar Warrior Farm.
We are extremely grateful for the time and efforts of our dedicated volunteers. Thank you for being a part of TWP, and helping us make a difference in the communities we serve! Please be sure to check out the contributions of our current and past volunteers and interns, as well as reviews about their volunteer experiences with us.

An internship is a great way to learn about working in the nonprofit sector and Trees, Water & People's day to day operations. All of our internships are unpaid, require an average of 10 hours a week, and are available for both credit and non-credit seeking individuals.
