Non-Stipendiary projects are the most common projects that YVSC Interns will participate in. With Non-Stipendiary projects, interns volunteer their time and, in return, are provided with professional development experience. These projects are flexible and provide interns with the opportunity to adapt it to their own interests and goals. Non-stipendiary positions are ideal for those who do not have prior experience in sustainability and/or are seeking course credit.
Stipendiary Projects are projects that are funded and have a stipend attached to it. A stipend is an allowance that YVSC will pay to Interns throughout their term. These stipends exist from grants and funding that are attached to specific YVSC projects and areas of focus. Stipendiary projects are offered on a limited basis and inherently have less flexibility than Non-Stipendiary projects because they have previously determined goals and actions associated with them. If a project has a stipend attached to it, it will be listed as such.
