Culture and Benefits

Plant With Purpose is committed to equality and celebrates the diversity of our team. Employees thrive in our diverse and enriching culture, which is guided by strong values of collaboration, innovation, empowerment, faith, stewardship, and sustainability.

All full-time employees receive a competitive and generous benefits package, complete with health, vision, dental, and life insurance; ample paid vacation time; 11 paid holidays; 8 paid sick days; 401(k) plan, with up to an 8% match; professional development; and relocation assistance.
While our internships are unpaid, we seek to connect your education with actual work, and we’re excited to partner with you in the development of your career goals. We open the floor to learn, to question, and to soak it all in (and to have some fun while you’re at it!) As an intern, you’ll spend 12-15 hours a week in our sunny, San Diego office, learning the ins and outs of how an international organization operates. From outreach, finance, and fundraising, to grants, research, and program management, you’ll gain hands-on experience with tangible outputs while working closely with a creative, close-knit team of professionals who are inspired to achieve lasting solutions to rural poverty. Be prepared: this is not your average paper-pushing, coffee-fetching internship.
We care deeply about our planet and are committed to reducing our environmental footprint. The Plant With Purpose HQ is equipped with compost bins, earth-friendly cleaning products, recycled office materials, oxygen-releasing plants lovingly maintained by our in-house green thumbs, and we reward colleagues who bike to work. Within the first year of work, new team members have the opportunity to visit our international programs witnessing transformation in action. We encourage staff and supporters to offset their carbon footprint by planting additional trees.
We celebrate wellness, birthdays, work anniversaries, and life milestones together. We travel abroad together. We take breaks over coffee, yoga, and storytelling. Our competitive streaks come to light through team fitness challenges, Office Olympics, team hikes, trampoline dodgeball tournaments, and lunchtime softball.
