The Green Building Corps

The USGBC-LA Green Building Corps delivers a structured intern engagement program that provides participants with valuable experience, relationships, and contributions towards green building projects that benefit the greater Los Angeles region. Green Building Corps participants commit to a minimum 6 month term of 10–20 hours per week, on either a volunteer or hourly rate basis, and will receive a certificate of completion at the end of their program experience.

Program Overview

Green Building Corps participants will provide project support for the USGBC-LA Annual Legacy ProjectGreen Schools microgrant projects, Chapter initiatives, and committees. Additionally, green building projects will be sourced across Architecture, Engineering, and Construction firms as well as sustainability consultants, public agencies, and community partners. The intent is for these projects to provide a public or community benefit, allowing unemployed or underemployed people to gain experience, build relationships, and better position themselves for future employment.
