Urban Resources Initiative (URI) - an Urban & Community Forestry organization based at YSE - is hiring Yale student interns to participate in its GreenSkills program this fall and spring!
GreenSkills is a green job training program for local high school students and formerly incarcerated adults. Their crews plant street trees at the request of New Haven residents, businesses, and community institutions. Their team of Yale Apprentice Urban Foresters and Program Associates support all aspects of their work – from fundraising and outreach, to tree planting and care.
They are looking for Yale student interns who are ready to a) contribute to local environmental restoration and climate adaption/mitigation projects, b) invest in relationship-building with the New Haven community, and c) commit to an equity-based approach to environmental work and community development. A year-long commitment is preferred, but semester-long internships are possible.
