Internships & Scholarships at VRG

VRG Internships

Internships can be in our Baltimore office or conducted long distance. Responsibilities depend on background, major if in college, and interest of applicant. Tasks may include research, writing, and/or community outreach. Internships are especially helpful for students working towards journalism, English, and nutrition degrees. Business majors can obtain experience related to the business aspects of a non-profit organization. Activists can learn new skills and gain a broader knowledge, as well as share their expertise. Positions are open throughout the year for all ages (including high school students living in Baltimore). Let us know if you need credit for high school volunteer or service learning work or college credit, plus the amount of hours you need. Internships are unpaid. If you would like to apply for a VRG internship, please email a resume, writing sample, and cover letter detailing your interests, skills, goals, and vegetarian knowledge to vrg@vrg.org, or send by mail to:

The Vegetarian Resource Group
P.O. Box 1463
Baltimore, MD 21203
