Work at TRPC

Internships at TRPC


The Thurston Regional Planning Council offers internship opportunities to students at local universities and colleges. Internships give students experience in local and regional planning, data collection, research and information services, and demographic and economic analysis. Students gain professional work experience in the public sector of employment.

Most internship opportunities are part-time, unpaid, and require a commitment of 10 to 20 hours per week for approximately 10 weeks. Formal evaluation of work can be arranged for credit-earning students.

Please contact Veena Tabbutt if you are interested in exploring internship opportunities and she will provide information about how to proceed.
