My time as an intern at Sustainable Westchester was a really valuable experience that allowed the interns the flexibility to explore their own interests. I mainly worked on interviewing and profiling homeowners who had made energy upgrades to their homes and created case studies about their experiences. There were many different aspects of the case study project and all of the interns were able to work on a different aspect of it that suited their interests and abilities the best. I was able to dive right in with interviewing, writing profiles, homeowner outreach, and even newsletter design, all of which prepared me really well to study journalism in college. I also learned a lot about the renewable energy industry in a very short amount of time. I feel confident that all of the skills I picked up at Sustainable Westchester will definitely serve me well in the future.

Working as an intern for Sustainable Westchester was one of the most fulfilling experiences of my senior year of high school. I hope to study environmental science in the future, so getting involved with a sustainability group in Westchester was both a great way to be involved with my community and to get experience before college. In addition, while interning for Sustainable Westchester, I found a new passion of mine! I was given the opportunity to edit testimonial videos for the Sustainable Westchester website and I quickly found that I enjoyed learning how to edit and I was able to cultivate a new skill. Not only was my work here rewarding, but all of the people I met during my internship were wonderful and always willing to help me out with my projects and I’m grateful I got to meet all of them!
