      Joint Venture Internship Program for Spring 2012

      Local Government Operations and Community Greenhouse Gas Emissions
      Inventory for 2010

      Joint Venture Silicon Valley has begun a project to inventory agency and
      community greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for the approximately forty
      jurisdictions in the Silicon Valley region. This project entails
      updating 2005 inventories to 2010 data to assist local jurisdictions in
      tracking their GHG emissions and progress toward their goals.

      Joint Venture is seeking student interns for the 2012 spring semester to
      be deployed to local jurisdictions to assist with these updates. Prior
      to deployment, interns will be trained by Joint Venture staff on how to
      analyze data from various sources related to GHG emissions, where to
      obtain said data, and how to record and report it. One to two student
      interns will be deployed to assist each local jurisdiction. Interns will
      be provided workspace and resources and work alongside designated
      personnel from the jurisdiction. John Sztukowski, Climate Coordinator at
      Joint Venture, will serve as the point of contact for technical
      assistance and ongoing training. Interns will gain valuable experience
      and exposure to the operations of a local government and gain marketable
      skills in GHG inventorying, data gathering, analysis, and management,
      and report writing.
