Clarence Petty Internship Program

Clarence Petty Internship Program

The Adirondack Council is committed to offering interns an experience that will prepare them for employment in an environmental non-profit, government agency, or related field by working alongside professionals at a nationally recognized conservation organization.

Clarence Petty Internship Program alumni have found jobs with state and federal government agencies and other environmental organizations. Former interns have become full-time members of the Council's program team. Others have continued with graduate study in public policy and pursued environmental law degrees. In return, the Adirondack Council has benefited from the interns’ enthusiasm and fresh perspective on the challenges facing the Adirondack Park. We are pleased to be training a new generation of environmental leaders.
