About Our Internship Program

In partnership with the Green Valley Project, Ventura Wild is excited to offer four paid internship positions for the Summer 2024 Season. 

The Green Valley Project, an environmental education initiative of the CREW, is dedicated to fostering the leadership and environmental stewardship of diverse youth through immersive experiences, community engagement, and hands-on projects. By providing dynamic learning opportunities and addressing environmental challenges, the Green Valley Project aims to empower young individuals to become responsible advocates for the environment.
