Built Environment Plus Internships
Built Environment Plus is the pre-eminent organization driving sustainable and regenerative design, construction, and operation of the built environment. Our mission is for everyone to have green buildings to work, live, play, and study in, within a generation. This is a lot of work!
Do you want to help make every building in the world (at least in Mass.) a green building? Would you like to participate on the inside of the movement with us at Built Environment Plus?
As an intern for Built Environment Plus, you will be doing a variety of tasks, from supporting day to day work, small research projects, and media design tasks. Internships with Built Environment Plus are fairly general, and projects are chosen based on interest. You will be able to put the final products in your portfolio to show others your skills and your expanding knowledge base related to the green building industry. We will also help you build connections across the state among green building professionals.
Start Date: Fall, Spring, and Summer
Fall & Spring: 200 hours (up to 20 hours a week, 10 weeks long), remote position
Summer: 400 hours (up to 40 hours a week, 10 weeks long), remote position

Do you have references that can attest to your good working habits? Can you share a story of how you were proactive in an organization? We will prefer folks who have been involved with Built Environment Plus previously and/or otherwise can show some connection to the green building industry.
The Intern will report to and meet at least once per week with the Executive Director for updates and planning. Interns would normally be expected to work from the Built Environment Plus office in downtown Boston. Due to COVID we have given up our space and moved to 100% remote for the foreseeable future.
