Marine Restoration Intern

June 2022 - September 2022 Irvine, CA
“I liked the internship and the work that I was able to do throughout my time there. I was able to create two brochures for ongoing projects and attend the Vans US Surf Open.”

Education Intern

May 2019 - August 2019 Costa Mesa, CA
“OCCK was an outstanding opportunity! I got to try so many different things while being an intern there. Besides running education events, which were awesome, I wrote grants, worked in the field with forest service working on a hydrology project, and survived beaches. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a summer internship. ”
