Where are they Now?

Since our founding in 2001, Crag has been committed to mentoring and training the next generation of environmental advocates by offering structured volunteer opportunities and for-credit internships to individuals who demonstrate a passion for environmental advocacy and a desire to pursue a career in public interest environmental work.

We extend our impact even after our interns leave us by actively reaching out to past interns to learn about their career paths and to ask them to reflect on how their experience at Crag has shaped their careers.

In this blog series, we explore the overall impacts we have had on those who participate in our mentorship program.
