The Coal River Group is looking for interns for the summer of 2017 to help operate the Coal River Canoe & Kayak Rental business.
Interns will be primarily tasked with day-to-day operations of the Coal River Group's boat rental business. Responsibilities will include: managing and maintaining boats and equipment; shuttling rental boats and passengers to their put-in/take-out site; handling business transactions for boat rentals and gear purchases; providing safety orientations to boaters; and marketing of the rental program.
Interns will also engage in maintenance of the Coal River Water Trail. Tasks will include: creating an inventory of existing signage throughout the 100 miles of water trail, and working with volunteers to replace needed signs.
Details & Requirements:
This is a full-time, 10-week summer internship program that will take place at the CRG River Center in Tornado, WV. The intern schedule will include flexible hours and days, allowing the three interns to coordinate their work schedules and carpool from Huntington.
As this position requires handling boats, applicants for this position should be physically fit, capable of lifting 60lbs, and able to swim. First aid certifications are preferred.
Upon completing the internship, interns will be awarded a $1000 scholarship.
