The Hurricane Island Foundation was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 2009 and is a publicly supported 501[c](3). Our mission is "to create and preserve an open and sustainable island community that supports and enhances the educational opportunities of youth from Maine and beyond."

Hurricane Island is 10 miles southeast of Rockland and two miles southwest of Vinalhaven in the Fox Islands archipelago, Penobscot Bay, Maine. On Hurricane Island, we are working to develop both the Center for Science and Leadership and our Field Research Station. Both of these initiatives will work together to help students and scientists participate in authentic, hands-on field science and collaborative leadership programs and experiences.

Our summer and school year programs reach public and private middle and high school students, college and university students, graduate researchers, undergraduate interns, amateur naturalists, scientists, sustainable engineers, and volunteers who are committed to our mission and excited about the opportunities on Hurricane!

Seasonal jobs offered: Yes We run programs on Hurricane Island May-October and have a variety of seasonal positions to live and work on the Island during that time. We offer science education programming and need educators, interns, kitchen staff, and other facilities support staff each year. The remainder of the year we are based out of our mainland office in Rockland, ME.
Internship Program: Yes Our summer internships range from Teaching Assistantships to work with our Science Educators to engineering interns that work with our sustainable systems and even garden/kitchen interns.
Entry level positions: Yes We are currently in the process of hiring for a full-time Office and Admissions Manager. You can learn more about this position and others on our website at http://www.hurricaneisland.net/employment/.
