Common Tides Summer Internships

Education & Science Internship to Help Youth Experiencing Disadvantages

For 2021, we will be returning to the US Virgin Islands with two different offerings. Our longer expedition is aimed at providing free marine science and sailing programs to local children that are experiencing disadvantages and is open to all genders and majors.  We are excited to say this trip is currently full, but we are still speaking with students about our waitlist and potentials for next year. 

Our other offering is a week long leadership program geared to promote future female leaders.  

As you know, our trips rely on motivated, passionate college students who help us teach these programs over the summer.  We are currently accepting applicants.  Applications can be found on our website at  Interns are also welcome to contact me directly for an application packet for either trip; the packet has full trip details on that specific expedition.    

We are excited to continue our work this coming summer. Please see the flyer links below for 2021 trip details and for ease with printing.
