I am an intern at GENI starting June 2012 and so far I have had a good experience in working with the various staff members of GENI and the SimCenter. Peter is a very helpful executive and the rest of the staff members are also very encouraging. GENI has a great project in the Project Energy City Competition to help students learn more about environmental concerns all over the world.

I would recommend anyone who wants to know more about sustainable renewable resources and their future,to work with GENI.It would give them good exposure.

Volunteering at GENI has been very educational for me. I have learned how to use some aspects of Dreamweaver, and most important I enjoy the positive atmosphere and the friendliness of everybody at the office. The Intern Coordinator, Patricia Stevens, takes great care to see that I am working on projects that farther my education relating to all aspects of environmental issues. I am unemployed and want to understand more about environmental solutions around the globe and in the future hope to find an occupation that is related to this subject.
