About the Max Internship

Founded in 2008 in honor of late board member, Max Mukelabai, the Max internship provides a platform for high school graduates and college students of color including people of Asian, Black, Latinx, multiracial, and Native American descent to engage in and help shape conservation work. Rising leaders of color from across the state participate in paid 10-week summer internships, gaining real-world, hands-on experience. CTNC provides compensation, one-on-one mentorship, and professional networking to equip interns with a strong foundation for successful careers in conservation and beyond.

During the program, host sites learn about conservation through a lens of race and power. Through a combination of individual and group learning, host site supervisors build their capacity to facilitate discussions about race within their organizations, understand their relationships to power, and develop strategies for transforming a culture based in race equity practice.


All interns will receive a $5,000 stipend, divided and paid bi-monthly over the course of their internship.
