 Employer Testimonials

“The Clean Leadership program has had a very positive impact on the small coastal community of Lockeport. It has made it possible for us to advance our environmental agenda and for that we are very grateful.”

Town of Lockeport

“Clean Foundation internships are the difference between being able to engage young researchers on our projects and not being able to afford to hire anyone.”

Cape Breton University

 Intern Testimonials 

“Self-confidence was the most valuable skill I have developed. I was never truly ever able to have the confidence I needed to speak up for what I believed was right, but this internship taught me the importance of having self-confidence. I am a stronger person now than I was at the beginning of my internship.”

Intern with Eskasoni Band Council

“I have greatly enjoyed my experience with the Clean Foundation Summer Internship program. Interns are given access to a broad range of experiences that really distinguish them to future employers.”
