LEAF is a partnership 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 recruit students who attend partner schools. Please check the school page for updates as we continue to expand! If you want to know what to expect as a participant, check out the cool stories, videos and pictures below.
