The opportunity for Westchester Green Business members
Thanks to a grant from The Westchester Community Foundation and support from The Greenburgh Nature Center, WGB members are invited to participate in the 2017 Green Business Internship Program. This new benefit was developed to assist members in forwarding your sustainability goals, while offering college students a unique and meaningful work experience.
WGB is actively recruiting undergraduate and graduate-level students currently enrolled in local colleges and universities to apply to one or more of the available internship opportunities (listed below). Prior to beginning the internship, students will participate in a two-day training session at the Greenburgh Nature Center to learn more about the Westchester Green Business program, sample projects and internship expectations.
The internship program will run for 8 to 10 weeks in the summer (June to August) and fall (September to November). WGB will receive all student applications and pre-screen students before sending you candidates. Participating businesses will conduct an in-person interview at their offices prior to making a final decision to hire.
Participation will be limited to 15 spots per session. If you are interested in hiring an intern for either the summer or fall session, please contact Meg Curtin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
