About Appalachian Mountain Club

Founded in 1876, the Appalachian Mountain Club maintains 1,500 miles of trails and creates new ones to conduct tours.  AMC also runs recreation centers and manages more than 50 recreational facilities in the northeastern United States.  AMC’s chapters offer hiking, paddling, skiing, mountaineering, biking, trail work projects, the annual AMC White Mountain Guide, AMC Outdoors magazine and a literary journal, Appalachia.

Internship positions are usually available in a variety of industries, including publishing, education, advertising, research, or working on the trails at one of three facilities—the Boston office, the Pinkham Notch facility in New Hampshire and the Mohican Outdoor Center in New Jersey.  Interns can also choose to work in conservation or website services.


Open to college freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors, as well as grad students interested in research.  Non-U.S. citizens are eligible if they have a J-1 visa.
