Who we are: The ALLIANCE OF CLIMATE AND ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDS, Inc. (ACES) is a 501C3 organization devoted to building an alliance of collaborating organizations, businesses, NGOs, governmental bodies, educational institutions and individuals committed to foster effective actions to address climate change and environmental degradation.
Our purpose is: To foster stewardship and motivate local and regional action towards positively impacting the planet’s climate and our environment’s health.
Collectively, as an alliance, we will nurture and promote stewards of our environment, fostering collaboration directed at building a resilient, sustainable, healthy and prosperous future for the Greater Newburyport, MA area (initially as a model) and then beyond. We honor the axiom of “THINK GLOBALLY, WORK LOCALLY, AND ACT PERSONALLY,”
The organization is committed to personal growth and the evolution of a proactive, can-do culture in which each team member enthusiastically supports and works collaboratively on the key initiatives that are undertaken.
In building this organization, we are committed to providing qualified college students with the opportunity to explore their career interests and engage in important internship learning experiences. We look forward to the contributions of each student in our win-win working/learning environment.

Overview of Career Exploration Opportunities

Goal: To contribute to the growth and success of the organization by serving on a team of leaders supporting selected stewardship initiatives as a relevant and meaningful, learning experience.

Scope: Through participation with a school’s internship program, we interview and select motivated, positive students who are interested in a variety of applied learning experiences. We expect that the overall experience will contribute building blocks to a student’s envisioned career track. The work encompasses a variety of activities in working with and/or supporting other team members that relate to a student’s learning experience objectives. This could include working with an ACES initiative team; such as Waste Reduction, or on a specific project; such as, the Environmental Stewardship Internship program with multiple schools.

Responsibilities: The specific responsibilities and project will depend upon the student’s interests and focus.

Fields of Study/Projects: The nature of the project will be designed around the organizations needs and the student’s pursuits – whether he/she be exploring a sustainability leadership, environmental science, environmental engineering, environmental history, business management, administrative services, accounting, or marketing/communications career track.
