I joined Oregon Environmental Council's board for emerging leaders out of a profound respect for the work they do. After seeing the organization much closer up, that respect has only grown. I consider OEC to be one of the most effective environmental groups in the region, with a huge impact on statewide policy. Worthy of your support dollars and time.

I began my time at OEC as an intern for a carbon reduction program and I was soon hired on part time after my internship was complete. I have since moved on from OEC but only after spending time on OEC's Emerging Leaders Board. I cannot speak highly enough of the value of that internship and board experience to both my professional and personal development. While many friend's internships at other organizations resulted in boring administrative tasks and paperwork, I was given significant responsibility and creative freedom to work on the project. It opened up so many doors, more than I could have ever imagined and I am lucky to have chosen a non-profit that does such important work for Oregon's environmental causes. OEC enacts real change in Oregon and truly safeguards what I care about most in the state. I highly recommend contacting and talking with the staff at OEC, regardless of whether you are interested in volunteering, interning or become a full time staff member.
