Volunteer or Intern

En Español

RP is an organization that uses a bottom-up approach and actively seeks to receive and incorporate the advice and input from all RP team members wherever they are. We are not about exclusive ownership, but about creating partnerships, leveraging resources and forwarding our collective vision and mission through collaboration with our ever-expanding circle of the RP Team. Currently we are seeking volunteers or interns with experience in the following areas:

Graphic Designer

Rainforest Partnership is seeking a creative, contemporary graphic designer with an eye for upscale design. As an organization dedicated to saving rainforests and engaging the community in sustainable living, it is essential that we bring on volunteers as dedicated to our mission as we are. Our graphic design volunteer allows us to communicate our message visually. In a digital world, a mission such as our needs to stand out, and we need your help. Send a sample portfolio to info@rainforestpartnership.org and we will respond to you promptly.
