Internship Program History

Since the program was established in 1997, over 1,000 students have been placed in USDA positions through STEP, SCEP, and CIP hiring authorities. Our efforts have helped increase multicultural diversity in the Forest Service by reaching out to diverse, talented, and eager students in our community.

In 2006, the CCC was expanded to create the Northern CA Consortium (NCC) and Southern CA Consortiums (SCC). Thus, the new California Consortium (CC) was created. The CC aims to inform and educate youth about natural resources and environmental science while encouraging students' interest in higher education and natural resource careers. In the spirit of this mission, the CC helps to place qualified students into internship opportunities with the Forest Service and other natural resources agencies. In 2015, the California Consortium (CCC, NCC, and SCC) hired a combined total of over 260 students into Pathways, Temporary, MobilizeGreen, WRI, and other hiring authority positions throughout Region 5 and nearby states in various fields.
