Keep Virginia Beautiful (KVB) is a state-wide non-profit organization that focuses on litter prevention, waste reduction, recycling, beautification and environmental education.  Initiatives and events planned to continue in 2017 include 30 Grants in 30 Days, a Cigarette Litter Prevention Campaign in RVA, a KVB Golf Tournament, a Love Virginia campaign, the Adopt-a-Highway program with VDOT, and the 4th Annual Shiver In The River Winter Festival in January. In addition to the mentioned events, KVB is very active with social media and always looking for individuals to help us share our message and the opportunities to engage individuals.  An individual with video production/editing skills would be a plus.  If there are any students interested in working in marketing, communications or for a non-profit in the future, this is the great internship and opportunity for you.  You will get a firsthand look at how non-profits run, as well as a chance to meet other professionals in the environmental sector, attend board meetings and work special events put on by Keep Virginia Beautiful!

There is a need for a student intern during the fall semester.  This position is unpaid, somewhat flexible and can require approximately 10 to 15 hours a week.  The KVB office is located in the West end area and the candidate will need transportation but some activities/tasks can be done out of the office.  If interested, please email a resume and brief letter of interest to Mike Baum at
