For the eighth year, Casey Trees is offering high school students the opportunity to learn about trees and tree care, start to build a professional resume, be exposed to "green" jobs, and earn cash.

Casey Trees High School Urban Forestry Summer Internship Program is now accepting applications for its 2009 session (June 23-August 15, 2009). Interns learn how to maintain and identify trees, develop community outreach and organizing skills, and become better acquainted with the City's diverse neighborhoods.

Students earn $9.00 an hour and work 35 hours/week average, Tuesday - Saturday.

Applicants must be:
  • A DC resident
  • At least 16 years of age
  • Registered at a DC public, private or charter school
Applications are due Friday, May 1, 2009 and may be completed online or submitted by mail, fax or email.
