I worked at Worldwatch Institute as an intern (Less than a year)
I have had several internships in the past and have found this one to be most impactful. Since it is a small team, I have been able to contribute to meaningful initiatives happening in different parts of the world. I have also been able to work on projects that I am passionate about, and gain knowledge in different areas of sustainability.
The monthly Institute-wide meetings are very helpful for understanding what each program is working on and seeing how you can get involved in different projects. The community has been one of the best parts of this experience; it is amazing how much you can learn in a room full of intelligent and passionate individuals!
While the monthly meetings are helpful, it would be nice if there was more communication between programs aside from then.
Internships are unpaid (although as mentioned above, the experience is invaluable)
I applied through other source. I interviewed at Worldwatch Institute (Washington, DC) in April 2011.
The interview was really fun because I got to learn more from behind the scenes at an organization I really admire. I was from out of town so I had to do it over the phone. Unfortunately I didn't go further than the first phone screen since shortly after the first call I was accepted into a MA program that started early.
