At our headquarters in San Clemente, CA we offer university level students the ability to do worthwhile internships. Internships are typically available in the Environmental, Legal, Marketing, International and Chapter departments. 
Dillon Henry Memorial Internships
Created in 2007 by his parents, Harriet Zaretsky and Stephen Henry, the Dillon Henry Memorial Internship was created to honor Dillon’s memory, recognize his commitment to the oceans and coastal environment and help young people to pursue a career in coastal and marine conservation. This endowment provides funding for the Surfrider Foundation to hire and train the best and brightest interns each year. Funds are used to provide stipends for two qualified internships annually to work with Surfrider Foundation’s Environmental Department and/or Legal Department. Interns are required to work a minimum of twelve weeks and must attend an informal meeting with the fund’s donors during their internship. The Dillon Henry Memorial Internship provides a unique opportunity for emerging leaders in the environmental field to train with the leading grassroots, environmental non-profit focused on the protection of the world’s oceans, waves and beaches.
