Clean Cities Internships

Clean Cities offers internships through the Clean Cities University Workforce Development Program, which unites Clean Cities coalitions across the country with students interested in changing the future of onroad transportation.

Each year, students in the program work with Clean Cities coalitions to increase awareness of alternative fuels and advanced vehicle technologies and their potential for petroleum reduction. Interns work with coordinators and stakeholders in the community to plan events, analyze data, research markets, design websites, and promote initiatives through social media and public relations.

Students work on locally focused projects, such as planning and implementing the National Alternative Fuel Vehicle Odyssey Day, conducting fleet manager meetings, and working with campus fleet managers to promote the use of clean vehicle technologies.

Program Education

The Clean Cities University Workforce Development Program facilitates peer exchange and opens a direct line of education between industry experts by hosting webinars that feature current trends in social media and best practices in the field of public relations, as well as case studies from coalitions involved in the program.
