2019 Summer Interns Mitchell Carter (left) and Hana Tabit (right)

We are excited to announce that for the sixth consecutive year, BayCoast Bank is sponsoring Westport Land Conservation Trust’s (WLCT) outreach and stewardship summer internship program. Started in 2015, the internship program provides professional opportunities for two young people beginning their careers in the environmental field. Successful candidates will have a valid driver’s license and be able to provide their own transportation.

We are thrilled to partner with BayCoast bank again on the summer intern initiative. Our community is so lucky to have a bank who focuses on providing valuable opportunities for young people to learn, thrive and grow!​
