2. Professional Development: All students selected for an internship participate in a year-long cohort experience to develop professional skills that go beyond the classroom, as well as opportunities to learn from each other. 

3. Network Expansion: Students connect and collaborate with industry professionals and stakeholders, building relationships that can shape future opportunities.

4. Hands-on Learning: Students gain practical, hands-on experience that deepens their understanding of sustainability practices.

5. Sustainable Career Pathways: The skills and experiences acquired will prepare students for a range of career opportunities in the rapidly growing field of sustainability.
