An Intern Tale


Over the summer Sprouting Leaders had the pleasure to work with our interns, Anika, Jason, and Matthew. They helped prepare materials for our school-year projects and were able to join us on field trips and presentations. We are so thankful to have had their input and bright ideas. We are glad to say that we were in the 20% of teams who manage to solve The Escape Room challenge! We asked our interns a series of thought-provoking questions below. Feel free to get to know them!

Meet , the greatest Intern!
