Redstone is intellectual, creative, and passionate about real-world problems. We partner with some of the world’s largest foundations, companies, and NGOs to help answer tough questions on education, health, and the environment. Our clients and partners include the Hewlett Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Packard Foundation, and Feeding America, among others – all of whom share the ambition to make system-wide change.
Interns at Redstone will join a client-team with senior Redstone consultants, and join with their peers to develop a cohort project. You’ll participate in team meetings, get to do real client work, and gain unmatched exposure to clients and senior leaders. Each intern will perform research, analyze data, develop concrete solutions, and practice communicating those results. Mentoring and apprenticeship are a vital part of life at Redstone. You will work side-by-side with other interns and consultants to develop critical thinking, communication, process, and relationship-building skills.
In addition to the important work we do, we also like to have fun! Redstone interns will be offered a housing option in Boulder, CO (at Interns’ expense) with a community of other local interns, and be invited to participate in our social events and annual firm development day. Boulder is central to many excursions – outdoor adventures in the Rocky Mountains, the arts and culture of Denver, concerts at Red Rocks, and tons of acclaimed breweries and restaurants.

The firm is small by design, with offices in Boulder, Colorado, Bay Area, California, and New York, New York. This means you will play a key role on project teams. Small teams of two to four allow you to work directly with clients and senior leaders right from the start. Our work environment is open and supportive, and the firm offers strong private-sector compensation packages. Redstone alumni have excelled at the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, Google, and The Nature Conservancy, and have gone on to graduate programs at Stanford, Harvard, and Yale.
We bring a suite of strategic planning, design, and analytical tools to bear on complex social problems, and engage with our clients’ leadership and expertise to solve them. In New York City, Redstone facilitated a collaboration of the city’s top food assistance providers to help bring 10 million pounds of new food to neighborhoods where it’s needed most. In Costa Rica, the firm assisted the Linden Trust for Conservation and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation in permanently preserving over 1 million acres of critical terrestrial and marine habitat. Redstone also helped the International Planned Parenthood Federation double the number of annual services provided, reaching 137 million people, including some of the planet’s most disadvantaged and marginalized citizens.
We gather each Friday for lunch to discuss current projects, share travel stories, and cultivate new ideas. The firm encourages professional development and will provide you with the formal training needed to grow professionally.
As a firm that works on projects in many cultures and contexts, Redstone values diversity, equity, and inclusion, which we believe strengthens our people and work by encouraging creativity, collaboration, and openness.
The compensation package for an eight week Internship at Redstone includes a $2,000 signing bonus upon acceptance, and during the internship a weekly salary equivalent of $1,350 (paid monthly), plus paid holidays, flexibility for religious observance, and paid safe and sick time off.
