Sustainable Public Service Initiative

Need help completing Sustainable Jersey actions?

Sustainable Jersey is teaming up with the PSEG Institute for Sustainability Studies (PSEG ISS) at Montclair State University (MSU) to match upper-level students with Sustainable Jersey participating municipalities in need of help to complete specific Sustainable Jersey actions. This pilot program is a chance for students to take part in a valuable, experiential learning opportunity while simultaneously helping to municipalities to achieve Sustainable Jersey certification.

Here is how it works:

  • Municipal green teams identify action(s) from a specific list (to be finalized for the info session on December 15) they would be interested in having an intern work on.
  • Based on the action(s), a student with related coursework and/or experience will be assigned to the municipality.
  • Depending upon their program of study, the student commits to approximately 80 hours of time in the February - April 2023 timeframe to make progress on the action(s) under the guidance of their instructor and an assigned municipal contact.

We are finalizing the list of Sustainable Jersey actions that students can work on and will share this during the info session on December 15.  This is a great opportunity to target priority actions or others that require research, data collection/analysis, and marketing skills.


Virtual Information Session

Sustainable Jersey and PSEG ISS will provide an overview of this unique opportunity and answer questions during a virtual information session on Thursday, December 15 from 12:00pm - 1:00pm.
