CCE’s Growing Intern and Volunteer Program


Education and community involvement are crucial parts of what we do at CCE. This includes an increasing emphasis and reliance on a growing Intern and Volunteer Program.  Interns are typically college seniors or graduate students pursuing degrees in areas such as engineering, computer science, public policy, and related.

By working with CCE, interns receive professional guidance to them hone their skills and gain valuable experience and knowledge, especially in areas related to energy and environment.  In return, CCE is able to accomplish vital work that it could not otherwise afford to undertake.

Since early 2020, CCE has been recruiting Interns from area colleges and universities that have included UC San Diego, Cal State San Marcos, Point Loma Nazarene, and other California institutions.  CCE also recruits volunteers through sources that include VolunteerMatch, AARP, and our own website.

At present, CCE has interns and volunteers working carport and EV-related projects, research and outreach for the County-supported hot water heater project, public policy, website development support, and administrative support.
