Internships are often a foot-in-the-door for future employment. While most of them consist of making coffee, filing papers, and generally performing the duties of an indentured servant, the Sierra Club is offering one lucky young person the chance to have what they are calling “The Best Summer Internship Ever” — and I think you’ll agree with their assessment.

Here’s what you’ll be doing for 8 weeks if you get the lucky position:

– Traveling around the country to go hiking, rafting, and more with the Sierra Club’s youth programs.
– Creating a video blog to document all the experiences.
– Getting to have your home base in San Francisco at the Sierra Club’s HQ

The intern will also earn $2,500 for the 8 week (with all expenses paid for travel) and will be outfitted with $2,000 worth of gear from The North Face and Planet Explore.

Not too shabby, right?

All you have to do is answer a few questions and upload a short video to YouTube by the end of March. The application is here, and be sure to read their FAQ before you start planning out your awesome summer.
