Ventura Wild Internship Program


About Our Internship Program

Ventura Wild’s internship program is a professional development opportunity for those interested in working in a learning environment that promotes awareness, understanding and profound respect for nature.

Interns are scheduled to assist one of our program offerings (one day per week) with the opportunity to secure additional programs. We ask for interns to be present for the whole season to best establish a rapport with the group and build a consistent and meaningful group dynamic. Interns will work alongside 3 experienced outdoor educators to support a group of 12 participants.

Must be at least 16+ years of age and have reliable transportation.

This organization does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, age, sex, disability, national or ethnic origin, or sexual orientation.
