Our O’Neil Stewards provide valuable conservation-related experiences to qualified college students interested in building careers in the protection of our natural resources.
Thanks to a generous five-year endowment from the Joyce C. and William C. O’Neil Charitable Trust, North Shore Land Alliance launched a formal internship program with a stipend in the summer of 2016. We aim to give college students a diverse experience, build their job skills and inspire them to consider careers in conservation. For the Land Alliance, an organization whose land holdings are growing quickly, the additional hands provide much-needed care for our preserves.
We are very grateful to the Joyce C. and William C. O’Neil Charitable Trust for this fabulous opportunity to train the next generation of conservation stewards.

“College classes often give the facts and leave application to the imagination, whereas a great internship can provide skills and experience to put that knowledge into context. My internship with North Shore Land Alliance did this and more, as it helped me develop ideas of conservation and stewardship that I will carry with me into the future.”
“ I truly believe my job here with North Shore Land Alliance is making a difference in our environment and community, and that the skills I’ve obtained will help me in my next career journey.”
“My summer in the Joyce and William O’Neil Stewards Program was a great opportunity that gave me strong experience and knowledge concerning environmental and land conservation.”.
