Why I Do What I Do
17 Turning Green interns are joining our team this summer. 17 students who are passionate about environmental and social justice. 17 minds focused on sustainability, education, ecology, organics, communications, food, agriculture, economics, data, analysis, global studies. 17 individuals who are now a group, a cohort, a class. “It’s finally clicked for me that this is the place to be,” said one about her journey to finding purpose, like-minded movements, and this organization. Our staff couldn’t help but smile as each high school, college and graduate student introduced themself on our pre-orientation Zoom today, kicking off our first-ever entirely virtual summer internship program with inspiring, pro-active rising leaders. This is why I/we do what we do.
