Growing a brighter tomorrow takes all of our hands and generations committed to a more flourishing future. This is why NTBG’s internships are so critical. One internship can translate to a lifetime of plant passion.
Over half-a-century, we have hosted hundreds of interns that have become leaders in plant-based careers. We are honored to have been a part of their journey, and ask for your support to continue these irreplaceable opportunities for the next generation.
We’ve raised a total of $70,807 for internships so far. If you haven’t done so already, there’s still time to support internships at NTBG. Help us reach our goal of $100,000!
