Welcome to the Green Intern


We connect education providers to organisations that need their help the most. We think that socially responsible internships create win-win-win situations and generate positive, physical and philosophical change - one student, one project, one challenge at a time, to make our world, and our back yard, a better place. If you are a socially responsible organisation, or an education provider with service learning, internship or work integrated learning programs, The Green Intern can help you find what you seek.

We match motivated students to socially responsible organisations with needs, challenges and ideas.

We work with organisations and education providers to make this as easy, as rewarding and as valuable as possible. 

The Green Intern – learning to make a difference.

About The Green Intern

The Green Intern was established in 2009 to meet an increasing demand for real world experience from students and education providers and to assist not-for-profit organisations with much needed resourcing and support. Already in a short period of time, the Green Intern has facilitated hundreds of student internships and placements Australia wide, under formal ‘for credit’ arrangements with university and education provider partners, and for individual students and graduates seeking the advantage of an internship to improve their career prospects and compliment their academic achievement.

What do we provide?

The Green Intern is a practicum and intern placement provider, offering complete placement solutions and services for practicum, internship and work integrated learning programs. Our goals are driven by our partners. Our products and services are flexible and tailored to the needs of our clients. We provide curriculum driven placement programs for education providers, and provide the knowledge, skills and abilities required by not-for-profit and start up enterprises. If you need our assistance or a specific product developed, we can help you. For individuals, we can arrange a suitable practical experience to compliment their studies and prepare them for a future career in Australia.

Who are our clients and partners?

We work with a variety of groups and organisations, including Australian and international students, recent graduates, universities, private education providers and both corporate and not-for-profit organisations from government and industry. We specialise in cross-sector partnerships.

Through our programs, students and graduates can experience firsthand how learning can make a real difference – for themselves as individuals and for the organisations they are helping. We provide a variety of programs tailored to our clients and partners’ needs and our hands-on service and support ensure a smooth transition for all placements and a hassle free, mutually beneficial service to all stakeholders.
