 CCE Intern Associates and Volunteers Program

Education and community involvement are crucial parts of what we do at CCE. This includes an increasing emphasis and reliance on our growing Intern Associates Program as well as volunteers.  By working with CCE, interns receive professional guidance that can help them hone their skills and gain valuable real-world experiences and knowledge, especially in areas related to energy and environment.  In return, CCE is able to accomplish vital work that we could not otherwise afford to undertake.

Since early 2020, CCE has been recruiting Intern Associates from area colleges and universities that have included UC San Diego, Cal State San Marcos, Point Loma Nazarene, and other California institutions.  At present, CCE has intern teams focused on carport and EV-related projects, research and outreach for the County-supported hot water heater project, website development support, and administration support.

CCE also recruits volunteers through sources that include VolunteerMatch, AARP, and our own website.
