Green Summer Internships

by admin

This summer, students from Arabia Mountain High School and Maynard H. Jackson High School will spend July working with the Nature Conservancy’s Leaders in Environmental Action for the Future (LEAF) program, which targets urban youth populations underrepresented in conservation. The intense paid summer internship program, which is active in 28 states, trains interns for future green jobs.

Atlanta students will work on forest and river cane restoration, invasive species removal and planting trees with Trees Atlanta. Students will also focus on the Nature Conservancy’s new South River Neighborhood Network initiative, which supports urban forest projects in DeKalb and Fulton counties.
