For more than two decades, The Nature Conservancy's Leaders in Environmental Action for the Future (LEAF) program has engaged urban youth in conservation activities today so that they will become stewards for our planet tomorrow. During that time, the program has hosted more than 1,000 interns in 28 states to provide an opportunity to gain self-confidence, valuable job skills, conservation literacy and insight into academic and career possibilities. In addition to providing paid summer internships for high school students, the program also helps educators from environmental high schools share best practices and scientific resources.
