1. What type of training do you provide interns?
All MobilizeGreen Interns receive training before they begin internships. Whether the training occurs online or in person, MobilizeGreen provides “energy, climate, sustainability 101” for all intern participants with ongoing technical guidance provided specific to the internship focus.
2. Do you provide travel and/or housing for interns?
We make every attempt to recruit locally. Therefore, travel and housing typically are not included with most of internships. MobilizeGreen can work with our partners to provide such options.
3. How do I request an intern?
4. When do internships take place? How long do internships last?
MobilizeGreen Internships last for a minimum of 10‐12 weeks—long enough to develop a project and make a significant contribution. We also offer 6, 9, and 12 month internships. While most of our internships start on or around the beginning of a quarter, MobilizeGreen will work with you define the best start and end dates. Also, please see our timeline.
5. How do I determine intern goals?
You should look at current program goals, projects, and activities and consider what ongoing work you would like to expand or projects you would like to initiate or complete. Consider projects that will help advance your energy, climate, or sustainability objectives and provide challenging learning experiences for students.
6. Who will supervise and mentor the intern?
An in‐house supervisor should be selected because he/she likes to teach or train and has the resources to do it. The supervisor will help the intern keep their project on time and on budget. The supervisor may be a department head, project leader, long‐time employee or acting supervisor who is knowledgeable on the project where the intern will work and can provide some orientation and wisdom to the student. Leadership atMobilizeGreen together with the host local government will mentor the intern(s).
