Because tourism is considered the largest industry in the world, Rethinking Tourism Project develops community education about tourism and constructs a global network of Indigenous and non-Indigenous support groups to share information and resources. The environmental, cultural, social and economic impacts of tourism development reverberate in communities around the world, but increasingly target Indigenous peoples often without their full participation, management or ownership. Interns are required to commit a minimum of 8-15 hours per week for three months. RTP is an informal, flexible office atmosphere. Students and volunteers must be independent and self-motivated. Computer skills (MS Word, Publisher, Access, and Excel), PR/Communications experience, Spanish language interpretation/translation skills, environmental and/or international issues experience helpful. Some administrative work is required (filing, faxing, organizing a resource library, computer work, etc.). To apply, please send a cover letter and resume to the above address or email. Women, Native Americans, Indigenous Peoples and other people of color are strongly encouraged to apply.
