Recruiting Exceptional Achievers for Career Horizons

Founded in the Fall of 2002, REACH is a NCDENR program that strives to coordinate internship opportunities for college students pursuing degrees that are directly related to the various programs administered by the agency.  NCDENR offers a wide variety of internship opportunities that provide real-world experiences which are tied to the agency's mission of "preserving and protecting North Carolina's outstanding natural resources."  Through REACH, NCDENR establishes employment opportunities that are mutually beneficial to the agency and the intern.  Emphasis is placed on developing working relationships with individuals from diverse backgrounds. 

Although REACH operates throughout the calendar year, the program targets the summer months for paid internship opportunities.  Generally speaking, paid internships run for a ten week period starting the first Monday after Memorial Day.  Unpaid internships can be arranged outside of the summer months – possibly for college course credit.  

To be considered for an internship through the REACH program, please submit a completed State Application for Employment, resume, unofficial copy of transcripts, and a cover letter describing the type of opportunity you would like to pursue.
