“I chose LRNow [internship program] because I was recommended it by Zachary Roberts and after researching further became very interested in the work you all do. I was especially interested in working with a nonprofit to see how they operate in the sphere of environmental sustainability. Since I have joined, I have been learning more and am becoming much more passionate with the field. You all have been so welcoming and willing to guide me through each job. It has been so crazy seeing how interested and engaged you all are with your positions and it has surely been inspiring for me.”

“I chose LRNow for my internship because I am passionate about conservation work, and I wanted to start by helping to improve the environment of the area in which I was raised. A family friend mentioned LRNow and after looking through the website I found that the organization’s values and goals aligned with mine, and I saw that the people here are extremely passionate like me.”
