The Rocky Mountain Raptor Program offers multiple different internships that provide interns with valuable skills and experience in many different fields.  These internships range from the Outreach Internship that covers nonprofit communications and fundraising to the Rehabilitation Internship that covers raptor rescue and rehabilitation.

Education and Outreach Internships


Running a wildlife care rehabilitation program requires public relations, friend raising and fund raising.  It takes many hands, minds and creativity to make all the connections needed for success in our community.  If you are a high energy, creative, outgoing person that wants to contribute to the RMRP and help us spread our wings and soar, we want you.

Internships are available year round and can vary from 2 to 30 hours a week depending upon time of year, your needs and our needs. The Summer Outreach Internship and Winter Auction Internship are a 3 month commitment. The Educational Presentation Internship is a 12 month commitment.  Internships are non-paid, and provide no housing.
