Get Involved

There are many opportunities to get involved with Grey Towers

Internships

Thank you for your interest in Grey Towers’ internships. At present, the only formal internship program that Grey Towers administers is a national initiative through the USDA Pathways Program. This program is designed for college students or recent grads interested in careers with the agency. Other than the Pathways program, there are no available paid opportunities for the 2021 summer season at Grey Towers. Please check the ‘Employment’ tab located on the sidebar under ‘Working with Us’ often for any future postings.   

We may be able to offer unpaid volunteer learning opportunities to students and recent grads who may need internship/externship credits, a resume builder, or some on-the-job introduction and experience. This will ultimately be dependent on the ongoing COVID-19  pandemic guidelines and restrictions. If volunteer opportunities are offered, housing would not be available. If you are interested in volunteering, please submit a resume with a cover letter stating area of interest and availability to the appropriate program contact listed below.
