Summer Internship Opportunity with Sustain Magazine

The following internship opportunity was submitted to the Sustainability Office: 

Sustain - Northern California’s Green Living Magazine, based in Santa Cruz, is poised to launch its its first issue this summer. With an initial circulation of 10,000 copies, Sustain will be the Northern California’s source for practical tips and authoritative information for the environmentally conscious consumer. This magazine is rich with locally relevant content and photography to creatively inspire and enable the reader to gain a deeper understanding of issues, actions, and products and lead a sustainable lifestyle.

We are data driven and rely on creative infographics to simply convey quick facts and figures. In an era of green washing and confusing branding messages, our magazine will be the No. 1 source for environmental news and sustainability tips readers can trust. Our magazine is also distinguished by the fact that we systematically track our carbon footprint and locally offset whatever is left of it after we implement sustainable supply chain and operational practices - and we share those metrics with our readers.

We are seeking 1 to 2 interns for the summer to assist with and gain experience in both the artistic and operational elements of the magazine launch. Specifically, we are interested in working with interns who are interested in the intersect between art and environmental issues, have a positive attitude, are hardworking and possess one of more of the following skills:

  • Designing visually clean and compelling infographics 
  • InDesign for print layout 
  • Unique and engaging web design/layout 
  • Contact relationship management systems 
  • Social Media management for organizations 

This is a summer internship and unpaid. However, depending on potential intern interests, we can offer internships for-credit. Most work will be completed independently with biweekly work session meetings to be scheduled with the magazine founders at a mutually convenient time and location. There is the potential for these internships to continue past the summer with compensation. If you are interested, please forward a resume (including relevant coursework) and sample work products related to the preferred skills to Thank you!
