4GreenPs Internship Program:
Where Sustainability and Marketing Intersect
Our interns are undergraduate or graduate students passionate about sustainability and using business to make the world a better place. We plan to keep these profiles up indefinitely, as they’ll always be a part of 4GreenPs. Interns share with us their energy, enthusiasm, and great ideas, and in return we give them a taste of the “real world” of running a green business. Our goal is that they leave us a bit richer – financially, intellectually, and emotionally.
