Contact: Kathleen Marks, Associate Director, Resourceful Communities Program
Internship Host: Established in 1991, The Conservation Fund’s Resourceful Communities Program blends innovative techniques to help North Carolina’s underserved communities create new economies that protect and restore, rather than extract, natural resources. Resourceful Communities provides a range of direct assistance to develop the leadership and organizational capacity necessary for sustainable community development. Because Resourceful Communities works closely with local partners, including nonprofit, private and public concerns, we help ensure local ownership of long-term economic, social and environmental change.
