Former L.E.A.F. Intern position at The Nature Conservancy
about 2 years ago
Although you do need to be able to work collaboratively with a group interns should also be able to work independently. As a intern we had to reach out to different business owners and community members in the area we were working in to fundraise. There were also a number of other tasks that we had to complete independently, while I wasn’t super confident when I first began approaching business owners and professionals it was something I got better with over time. As an intern I learned how to communicate, work collaboratively with a team and in a community. I was also able to learn how I worked most effectively in terms of timeline and the tasks that I chose to complete!
