This spring, TIE said farewell to several of its interns! Read more about where the TIE internship can take you!

The TIE internship offers mentoring to students interested in pursuing opportunities within the environmental sector, education, communication, and related fields. An integral part of the success of TIE's programs and initiatives, our interns work closely with Jill Parlee, the Assistant Director for Programs and Nitsan Shakked, TIE's Associate Director. At TIE, interns assist with a variety of tasks, including: administration, coordination and management of educational programs, communication and outreach, graphic design, and many other tasks and objectives. The TIE internship helps prepare Tufts students to seek opportunities in their field of specialty or pursue interdisciplinary positions within the environmental sector. This spring, four interns took the skills they honed and developed at TIE to other endeavors. Read on to see where our interns are now!
