Dear BESTers,

If you are looking to get involved with an environmental 
organization this summer then please read the message below about 
this opportunity.

Sincerely,

Yelena Granovskaya
BEST Society President

Are you looking for an environmental internship or are you 
interested in volunteering with an environmental organization this 
summer?  If so, then consider joining the OurEarth.org community. 
OurEarth.org is a grassroots initiative that intends to completely 
transform the way environmental programs, activities, and 
information are found on the internet so that the public can 
become more proactive in protecting the environment.
     OurEarth.org is a national 501(c)3 non-profit organization 
and it still has internships available for the summer. Internships 
are unpaid but students can receive course credit if they have 
their own faculty advisor. Students that do not have enough time 
to commit to an internship but would still like to be involved 
with our efforts are welcome to volunteer. For added flexibility, 
all work is done remotely???so you can work from your home, 
campus, or anywhere else???yet you will still have very frequent 
contact with the OurEarth.org leadership via conference calls and 
email.
     What makes OurEarth.org unique and what are the advantages of 
getting involved? OurEarth.org is still a young organization so 
this is an opportunity to join on the ground floor of an 
up-and-coming organization. This means that you can take on 
leadership roles and, if you choose, have responsibilities that 
almost no other internships/volunteer activities can offer???which 
can certainly be useful on a resume. Additionally, OurEarth.org 
involves over 60 environmental professionals, experts, and 
undergraduate and graduate students from around the country so 
this is opportunity to begin networking for a future environmental 
career.
     For more information, please visit our website

might be interested in joining OurEarth.org, please contact John 
Ullman at (410) 878 - 6485 or [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>,
