Community Action for Sustainable Alameda (CASA), a nonprofit based in Alameda, CA, is offering part-time internships this summer for graduate and undergraduate students interested in sustainability, equity, and public policy. CASA partners closely with City staff, and intern projects are designed to support the implementation of the City’s award-winning Climate Action & Resiliency Plan.
Intern(s) may focus on projects related to community engagement and education for priority Climate Action and Resilience Plan implementation, including outreach and education for equitable building decarbonization, urban forestry and sea level rise adaptation.
This is a part-time position that requires 15-20 hours a week for 8 weeks, from June 19 to August 11 (the exact dates can be negotiated). We are offering a $3,000 stipend for each of two positions. The location of the project is in Alameda, California, but the work can be carried out remotely.
About the organization
CASA was formed in 2008 as a nonprofit partner of the City of Alameda in order to support the implementation of the City’s first climate action plan. CASA’s membership holds expertise in a variety of local sustainability sectors, including housing, transportation, zero waste, energy, and climate adaptation. For the last five years, CASA has partnered with City staff to supervise interns working on sustainability research projects.
