Get Involved

For Students

The summer internship portion of LEAF is a collaborative between the Nature Conservancy and a network of environmentally themed high schools. If you attend one of the LEAF partner schools, and are currently in your junior year of high school, please contact your guidance counselor for information about the program. Though we anticipate expanding opportunities for additional students in the future, at this time we only have capacity to recruit students who attend partner schools. Please check the school page for updates as we continue to expand!

The Nature Conservancy works in all 50 states and over 30 countries around the world. Please visit our career page and volunteer page to learn about ways to get involved with the Nature Conservancy in your local area.

For High Schools

To be eligible for possible inclusion into the LEAF Educator Network, high schools must self identify as an environmentally focused high school, serve a diverse student body, and have a strong graduation rate. If you feel your school meets these criteria, please have a school administrator contact with “LEAF school” as the subject of the email.

For Mentors

If you have experience working with high school youth, and are interested in becoming a LEAF summer Mentor, please email with “LEAF mentor” as the subject of the email.
