Internship Opportunity: Clean Cities University Workforce Development Program

Workforce Development Opportunity through Argonne National Laboratory and ASEE Application

The Centralina Clean Fuels Coalition (CCFC), in collaboration with the Clean Cities University Workforce Development Program (CCUWDP), seeks an intern for Spring 2023. This is a wonderful opportunity for students studying to gain experience in the energy and transportation areas. The CCFC has been in existence in the Greater Charlotte Region for over 15 years and was designated in April of 2004 in the Department of Energy’s Clean Cities program. The Coalition is housed at the Centralina Regional Council, a state designated lead regional organization in North Carolina comprised of Anson, Cabarrus, Gaston, Iredell, Lincoln, Mecklenburg, Rowan, Stanly, and Union counties.

The student that interns with the CCFC will mainly be involved in marketing and public outreach activities including writing and editing articles and social media posts, newsletter development, creating videos, press releases, and website development. Student interns will have the opportunity to grow public awareness and expand the markets of advanced vehicle technologies, alternative fuels, and practices that reduce the consumption of petroleum. The student can also expect to give presentations to small groups, interview coalition members and outside organizations for key deliverables, and conduct some secondary-source research and report-writing. The Clean Cities internship will give students studying communications, public relations, business, marketing, engineering or environmental sciences, the opportunity to increase public awareness and expand the markets of advanced vehicle technologies, alternative fuels, and practices that reduce the consumption of petroleum. Students have participated in research, outreach activities, public education, fleet events, and a vast array of transportation-related environmental projects.
