We congratulate and honor our Nature Conservancy GLOBE interns on their successful assignments throughout the United States and abroad. Read testimonials from our interns to find out more about how a GLOBE internship can enhance your career and life skills and change the way you see the world.
“This summer is a turning point in my life, right after I graduated from college, I was fortunate enough to get in to the Globe program. Globe program has helped me open my eyes to various job fields that contribute to conservation and I have never known before and connected me with a lot of networking opportunities.”
—Jennifer Sun, State University of NY – College of Environmental Science and Forestry
"For me this internship was about the vibrancy of diverse thought, about taking what I knew about conservation, and the looking at it from a different perspective. At the end of the day I’m richer for it."
—Dani Wijekoon, University of San Diego
“Through two summer internships with The Nature Conservancy, I gained a diversity of professional skills, ranging from hands-on science field work to strategic marketing. By interning at both a field office and the worldwide office, I developed an understanding of how an international nonprofit is managed and the ways in which many pieces work together to create TNC’s global impact on conservation. I had a wonderful experience with TNC, and I’m glad I was able to meaningfully contribute to the organization’s valuable conservation work.”
—Kathyrn Bomey, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI
“This summer as a GLOBE Intern affirmed my interest in urban conservation, gave me insight into the inner workings of a non-profit environmental organization, and created wonderful friendships.”
— Helen Song, Williams College
“For me this summer has presented me with the opportunity to begin my career as an environmental professional as well as learn many new things while honing the skills I already had. This was also an opportunity for me to meet some great people.”
