My time as an intern at ECOLIFE Conservation was simply incredible. I was surrounded by individuals whose passion for nonprofit work and environmental conservation shined through in their tasks every day, and inspired me to pursue a future in conservation. This internship challenged me to be creative, decisive, and collaborative in my assignments and my college experience was significantly improved because of my time here. I know the skills I learned during this internship will carry over in to my future career endeavors and I could not be more thankful the opportunity to intern with such an amazing organization.

Development & Marketing Intern

My time at ECOLIFE was one of the most enlightening experiences I’ve had in my undergraduate career. I had the privilege of working side by side with passionate professionals while being guided by one of the most amazing mentors ever! Witnessing our efforts bear fruit in our communities has been a treasured memory that will always stay with me. It truly was a meaningful and eye opening experience! Jesse Grajeda

Aquaponics Education Intern

My internship at ECOLIFE has taught me more than I could have learned in a classroom. As the social media intern, I learned marketing skills and how truly important social networking is to a company. I have also learned so much about aquaponics, the type of fish used, the nitrogen cycle, how to check pH in a water system, how to harvest crops, and how to build an ECO-Cycle from the ground up. Most importantly – how to spread awareness about sustainable food production through education. The hands on experience has been priceless. Stephanie Ledezma
