Education

We engage the community in decision-making and help teach the value and benefits of urban planning and design.

Internships & Mentoring

We take pride in helping develop the next generation of urban planning and design professionals.

We routinely offer hands-on paid co-op and internship opportunities to university students studying in the field. We enjoy the opportunity to serve as mentors to college-age planning and design professionals in the region. If you are interested in an internship with TDC contact us today!
