The Colvin Internship
This fund has been established to honor Dr. Ed Colvin who continues to offer dedication for and love of Alabama rivers and works to secure their safety. He has always given generously to others and in that spirit, we want to support young environmental heroes. Dr. Colvin is a tireless advocate for our waters and we know our interns will be thrilled to meet him, learn from him and become future leaders.
The Colvin Internship will allow the Alabama Rivers Alliance to hire an intern each summer to assist in water policy research, organizing and implementing advocacy campaigns, assisting with citizen water monitoring trainings and other citizen organizing activities, and assisting with organization development needs. With only four full time staff, an internship program can greatly increase the ability of the Rivers Alliance to achieve their goals and ensure healthy water resources for all Alabamians for generations to come.
"The summer internship program with Alabama Rivers Alliance was by far the most incredible experience I had as an undergraduate at the University of Alabama. This internship benefitted me not only academically, allowing me to practice textbook lessons in a real-world organization, but it also benefitted me both personally and morally. Alabama Rivers Alliance is such a special organization, made up of caring, passionate people who truly showed me the importance of nonprofit public relations. As I learned more about Alabama Rivers Alliance, I soon found that my internship was not just an internship anymore. This experience had quickly become an outlet to express my passion for the career in which I will soon professionally practice."
Please help us meet our goal of $3,500 to hire an intern for special projects in the summer of 2013!
Our pop is an inspiration to us - and though it might embarrass him - we want to show him our thanks for being a wonderful leader and we want others to learn through his example. Please consider giving your support to Alabama Rivers Alliance interns. We are so proud of our father and all that he gives to others! - The Colvin kids
