Student Work and Internship Opportunities

Northfield is home to two colleges, St. Olaf College and Carleton College, and Clean River Partners is proud to work with both in many capacities. Clean River Partners sponsors academic year student work positions at both colleges and regularly hires summer interns to support our work. These opportunities are only open to current students, so please visit each college’s respective job board posting for more information. For questions about student employment and internships, please contact Kristi Pursell at kristi@cleanriverpartners.org.
