Evergreen Construction Interns 2019

Meet Our Evergreen Interns

One of our pride and joys is our internship program. It’s something that we’ve been fostering since our inception and is a huge part of our company culture. Season after season, our interns impress us and many go on to not just co-op for Evergreen but build their careers here as well. In fact, many of our current employees are former Evergreen Construction interns. 

This summer, we’ve welcomed 14 interns to our program. Two of those are returning interns, four are co-ops, and eight are first-time interns that we hope to see again. Today, we’re introducing you to three of our fourteen interns. Meet them below!
