About Us

In a time of economic and climatic destabilization, Oberlin Project interns will have the opportunity to assist in the creation of a regional, national, and international model of the necessary transition to a community that is resilient, prosperous, and sustainable. The Oberlin Project is a joint effort of the City of Oberlin, Oberlin College, Lorain County Community College, and private and institutional partners that will spearhead this transition by working with local stakeholders; leveraging regional, national, and global resources and expertise; and coordinating existing and new efforts towards a common goal. Interns will work closely with Oberlin Project staff and leadership on projects in one or more of the following areas: energy, economic development, community engagement, education, and agriculture and local foods.

Opportunities To Serve

There are numerous opportunities for either short-term projects or long-term internships with the Oberlin Project in the areas of energy, economic development, community engagement, education, and agriculture and local foods. In particular, the Project seeks students interested in communications (social media, blogging, writing), research (physical, economic, and social systems), and service learning (specific projects). We also encourage students to propose their own project ideas that they think would fit within the Oberlin Project. Must be able to commute to Oberlin periodically.
