Do you have internships, summer positions, or volunteer positions for teachers or students?

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) does not have any positions specifically targeted to teachers, but motivated teachers can sometimes find volunteer positions by contacting a local USGS office directly, or by looking through the website.

Student internships are designed for college-level students and recent graduates. The USAJOBS website has a section for Students & recent graduates with information on the government's Pathways Program and its own search function.

Younger students are encouraged to explore our many citizen science and volunteer opportunities ( that generally involve working from a home computer or reporting observations made on their own time.
