As we get closer to graduation, we're looking to hand over the reins of Greenlight Workshops to Yale Students who are just as excited about the Environment, Business, Design, and Facilitation as we are - if not more! This is a paid position with the Yale Center For Business and the Environment and activities include client sourcing, developing and improving programming, coordinating logistics, and of course, facilitating workshops.

We've enjoyed every bit of it! If YOU are interested or know of someone who'll be great for this role, apply HERE!

Reach out to any of this year leads with questions: jordan.woll@yale.edu, phillip.dube@yale.edu, or jessica.harpole@yale.edu. We look forward to hearing from you!
