Internship Opportunity: Join Our Team!

We are pleased to share the launch of the Spring 2022 term of the U.S. Depart­ment of Energy’s Clean Cities Uni­ver­si­ty Work­force Devel­op­ment Pro­gram (CCUWDP). This spring, CCUWDP is offer­ing 50 work­force devel­op­ment pro­gram posi­tions across the nation and appli­ca­tions are now avail­able. This is a won­der­ful oppor­tu­ni­ty for stu­dents look­ing to gain expe­ri­ence in the ener­gy and trans­porta­tion areas.

Clean Cities strives to reduce petro­le­um con­sump­tion in the trans­porta­tion sec­tor in near­ly 100 com­mu­ni­ties across the coun­try.
