National Grid Part Time Year-Round Sustainability Hub Ambassador Intern in Worcester, Massachusetts
COVID-19 update: The Hub has been physically closed since mid-March 2020 due to the ongoing pandemic. However, we have been continuing operations in a virtual setting. We expect to return to our physical space during the Fall of 2021 with limited hours and enhanced safety precautions. The Hub experience will likely become a hybrid of virtual and normal operations. Thus, interns will be expected to work both physically and virtually in a hybrid work model. We will continue to monitor the pandemic closely during the internship duration and if necessary, pull back to an all virtual experience.
The National Grid Sustainability Hub is a collaborative, community engagement destination designed to elevate the conversation around the future of energy and the environment.

Hear from our Interns!
Check out what our interns have to say about the Sustainability Hub and the important work being done to educate others on sustainability.
“One of the most important parts about sustainability awareness is that once people begin to learn about it, they begin to notice things in their everyday lives that may not be beneficial for the environment. At a community level, this may lead to influencing changes in the local governments that could lead to much larger changes and increased awareness for everyone in the community. The more people we are able to reach with sustainability education, the better off we will be.” Conor , Massachusetts Sustainability Hub Ambassador
"Our planet has been around for so many years, but in recent years with climate change, it has taken a toll with all of the environmental changes. By the Hub educating people about how to be greener and using the best energy products and appliances, while also being conscious of their incomes, it truly has made a difference and continues to do so. While handling social media and finding educational articles, I learn new things daily that I was previously unaware of, like how renewable energy works and the best resources for it and the impact it makes. Being able to connect with the community as well and give back through education is also such an amazing thing to be able to do. It feels amazing to really make a difference."
