Internships! Building Performance and Sustainable Transportation
Metropolitan Energy Center is currently seeking summer interns to help keep Kansas City green. We are a 501c3 non-profit dedicated to promoting environmental sustainability and economic vitality in the Heartland by advancing clean transportation and energy efficient buildings. We will consider the student’s program interests when placing the student, so that the intern’s responsibilities will be based upon our current need and your experience, skills, and interests.
Building Performance intern will support the Healthy Homes goals under our Energy Solutions Hub program. Activities will include multiple training events, community interaction and more. Some research assistance in our Codes and Policy projects could be required. More information: https://metroenergy.org/programs/energy-solutions-hub/.
