The Utah Rivers Council is a grassroots organization dedicated to the conservation and stewardship of Utah's rivers and sustainable clean water sources for Utah's people and wildlife. Founded in 1995, we work to protect Utah's rivers and clean water sources for today's citizens, future generations and healthy, sustainable natural ecosystems. We are an advocacy organization dedicated to social change for the benefit of Utah's rivers and the many generations of life they support.


Internship Details


The Utah Rivers Council is seeking an intern for the Spring 2013 Semester to act as a leader for BLUEPRINT.  The project is a campus-wide, multi-departmental effort to institute permanent water conservation at the University of Utah through a mixture of education, technology and policy change.


We are interested in enlisting student help from the School of Computing or elsewhere to successfully create a Utah specific water footprint calculator (a web-based application that helps people understand their water usage through an online survey). The skills required for this internship include:


  • Experience building web-based apps using JavaScript or PHP (or equivalent)
  • Knowledge of HTML and CSS
  • and, ideally but not required, Flash or HTML5 (or equivalent)


This internship is an excellent introduction into the world of non-profit environmental work and a good opportunity to network with professionals in the environmental arena. The student will gain a glimpse into what a career with an environmental organization entails.



This is a temporary paid position, at $8-10/hour.  We request a minimum commitment of 6-9 hours of work per week.  Scheduling is flexible within regular 9-5 business hours.

A qualified applicant will have excellent writing and speaking skills, be capable of interacting with diverse groups, be capable of working independently, and able to seek guidance when necessary. Maturity and self-direction are vital.
