Internship Details 

We strive to provide a multidisciplinary experience that gives you the chance to see the many sides of an environmental issue. We will plan field trips and other outings to make sure you get out of the office to see the communities we serve and understand first-hand the impacts of the issues we address. MCE’s main office is located in the heart of the South Grand neighborhood overlooking Tower Grove Park. We have a rooftop deck with a great view of the City where we’ll host social and educational events throughout the year. We hope you will consider joining us!
 

What St. Louis Has to Offer During Your Internship

St. Louis is one of the most livable cities in the country. The cost of living can’t be beat and the summer is full of free events, such as Shakespeare in the Park, outdoor concerts, and free yoga at the Tower Grove Farmer’s Market. And with Food Truck Fridays across the street and all that South Grand has to offer, including the best Thai and Ethiopian for starters, you'll get to experience a variety of St. Louis flavors. And St. Louis needs environmentalists. Sure, you can go to Portland or Boston or San Diego, but if you want to understand truly the challenges facing environmentalists, Missouri is the place.
