GreenInfo Internship (Summer or Fall Terms)

The GreenInfo Internship Program aims to provide students, in the beginning of their academic journey, access and exposure to a career in GIS. We are offering this program to students from select Bay Area colleges and particularly encourage students who identify as BIPOC to apply.

The Internship Program will center around a self-led research project that interns develop with support from a staff mentor. The goal is to provide students with key learning benchmarks for their future careers, and each intern will produce a final product to start or enhance their GIS portfolio. We believe students will significantly benefit from immersing themselves in our core organizational strengths around delivering finished, usable, and beautiful GIS products.
