Green Building Corps

The USGBC-LA Green Building Corps (GBC) is a structured internship program that provides participants with valuable experience, relationships, and opportunities to contribute to green building projects with the goal to make the greater Los Angeles region healthier, more affordable, and sustainable for all.

Participants provide project support for the USGBC-LA Annual Legacy Project, Green Schools microgrant projects, California Native Plant Landscape Curriculum, as well as other chapter programs, and member groups. Additionally, green building projects are 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 those seeking opportunities to gain experience, build relationships, and better position themselves for future employment.

*GBC Members commit to a minimum six-month term of 10–20 hours per week, on a volunteer basis.

  • Be matched with a mentor from our Mentor Network (either in-person or virtually) to focus further on their individualized career development
  • Be provided with FREE USGBC-LA memberships and access to all our training sessions, recorded content, and events at no cost whenever possible
