Join us on January 15 from Noon to 1:00pm for an informational webinar on the Smart Community Corps Program.
The Smart Community Corps (SCC) is the first statewide program of its kind. The program places Georgia Tech students into municipal governments to support smart community projects. The Smart Cities and Inclusive Innovation (SCI2) began this program to give Georgia Tech students access to real-life civic experience during the summer semester.
SCC is a paid full-time (40 hours/week) internship over the summer semester funded by SCI2 for civic-minded Georgia Tech students dedicated to creating livable, and equitable communities through implementing smart technologies and data analytics. Interns are placed in our communities and work “on site” as part of the project team alongside our community partners for 10 weeks from approximately mid-May to the beginning of August.
The Smart Community Corps internship is a joint collaboration with the Georgia Tech Center for Serve-Learn-Sustain (SLS), the Center for Career Discovery & Development (C2D2), and the Student Government Association (SGA). Through this partnership our interns will have access to professional mentorship through SLS program and educational seminars to Introduce students to theories of grassroots sustainability innovation.
