  • comfort with communication and collaboration technology—intern will make regular use of chat, texting, shared Google Docs, and more.
  • an interest in the YES! take, sustainability, social justice, activism, community organizing
  • comfort and flexibility in working in multiple locations (on-site at Bainbridge Island office, off-site in Seattle, variety of live local events) — preferred, but not essential for this internship
