Tessa was doing an environmental economic internship offered through Building Bridges to Careers (BB2C) and Rural Action. The paid spring internships allowed high school students to complete 50 hours of service over ten weeks with a business that works with the environment, agriculture, or ecotourism.

Tessa’s experiences attest to the impact these internships can have for both the student and the business. Read more about her internship, including details about how businesses can participate.
