Short-term work with long-term impacts on climate change.

UVA's Environmental Institute hosts an Environmental Externship Program. This is a job-shadow mentoring program designed to expose students to career opportunities and guidance.  

Students are matched with workplace mentors of the student’s choice. These mentors help students learn about career options and potential areas of study as well as offer professional insights.

The program runs for the entire extended upcoming J-Term (typically early to mid-January). Career fields from performing arts to technology have been represented.

EI partners with the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs, and UVA Career Center to bring students this opportunity.
