This internship is genuinely so much fun. The gardens are amazing, the kids are curious to learn, and I gain more knowledge about produce and organic farming everyday. On a personal note, I love seeing the direct impact that I have in my role because the company is small. They say it only takes one seed to make a difference, and it brings me so much joy to feel like I get to be a seed here!

Vera, United States, Food Security and Urban Farming Internship

Overall, I am incredibly happy with my experience. I could not have imagined how much I would learn in just a few months, and it's thanks to this experience that I now approach jobs since then with a sense of confidence that has been vital in making me competent and trustworthy in any professional environment.

Grace, United States, Marketing Internship

I have learned that any position can have an impact on an organization, big or small. You have to go head first into any task whether it's tedious or not, to realize the real impact you're having on a organisation.

Tanner, Canada, Marketing Internship

I have learnt to step out of my comfort zone and embrace what comes at me, whether it is positive or negative. I feel so fulfilled from this internship as I know that I have helped many people on the streets, even if its just with a genuine conversation.

Kelsey, South Africa, Research Internship

I went into it hoping I would learn a lot, be stretched out of my comfort zone, grow in confidence and feel as though I was helping in some way. As I reflect back I think all of these things have happened. I was able to do a myriad of different tasks, that were stimulating, challenging at times and I was making a difference even if in small ways.

Naomi, United States, NGO Management Internship

I loved to see the amount of thoughtfulness and upcycling that goes on in the office, and working with a group of people that want to make a positive difference even when it’s an inconvenience. I don’t really think that my time with Cape Town or South Africa is finished, to be honest.

Anne, United States, Events Coordinator Internship

The time I spent in Cape Town was phenomenal. There are few words that can accurately describe it to those who have not yet had the privilege to visit. Taking an international internship where you don’t know anybody is extremely difficult and nerve-wracking but the reward is beyond worth it.

Robby, United States, Urban Greening Internship

I experienced everything and yet nothing on this trip and it has had a profound effect on me. As I return to Idaho I must quote one of my favorite sayings from Nelson Mandela, “There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.”

Tristyn, United States, Media Internship

I would also recommend to get an internship in an organisation you really believe in. The more you can support their values and what they stand for, the more you'll enjoy your internship, since you're not only learning but you're also part of something bigger you really believe in and want to add value to.

Reini, Belgium, Creative Writing Internship

As an intern, I have been given the opportunity to attend the environmental lessons in the schools as well as updating lesson plans and developing a workbook together with the Green Team. This workbook will be printed and used in the Living Classrooms from next year on!

Amanda, Sweden, Content Creation Internship

I've just had a wonderful three months. Knowing I only have two weeks left is hands down the first time I've actually been remotely unhappy during my internship.
