Young Magnet High School and will be joining Illinois Green in the afternoons the 2019-2020 school year as part of his Senior Experience. Alex reached out to us about this internship because he’s interested in the specificity of our goals regarding sustainability, as well as our expertise in green infrastructure in the Chicagoland area. He’ll be helping us with a variety of projects throughout the year, including researching carbon drawdown strategies and coming up with ideas about what students can do to help lower carbon and energy use at school.
