The USGBC-LA Green Building Corps (GBC) represents a structured internship initiative that offers participants a valuable chance to gain practical experience, forge connections, and actively contribute to green building projects. The objective is to enhance the overall well-being, affordability, and sustainability of California for all its residents.
Participants in this program extend their support to various projects, including the USGBC-LA Annual Environmental Justice Project, Green Schools microgrant initiatives, the California Native Plant Landscape Curriculum, as well as other chapter programs and member groups. Additionally, green building projects are identified from within architecture, engineering, and construction firms, sustainability consultancies, public agencies, and community partners. The goal is for these projects to yield public or community benefits, enabling those seeking opportunities to acquire hands-on experience, foster connections, and strengthen their positioning for future employment.
*GBC Members commit to a minimum six-month term during which they dedicate 10–20 hours per week on a volunteer basis.
