“The Mickey Leland Environmental Internship Program has been an amazing success for almost three decades. Today we continue to rely on the goodwill of corporate entities and individuals to support MLEIP with the following call to action:
  • Public and private sector organizations are needed to host interns; and
  • Generous donors are needed to help underwrite the cost of the internship program, specifically, to fund the annual intern conference, professional development sessions, and interactive virtual webinars.
I am committed to providing financial support to the Mickey Leland Environmental Internship Program on an annual basis going forward. I humbly request companies, individuals, and MLEIP alumni consider making a similar commitment to ensure the internship program continues and is strengthened as an amazing gift that keeps on giving.”
