Welcome Cate & Nikki: 1% FTP Summer Interns
Introducing 1% for the Planet’s Summer Interns: Cate & Nikki !
Cate is thrilled to be spending her summer at 1% for the Planet! She is a Chicago native and will be a senior at Middlebury College this fall. She is studying Geography and Political Science. This summer, when not working, you can most likely find her enjoying maple creemes or one of Vermont’s beautiful swimming spots.
She first became interested in 1% for the Planet based on her interest in corporate philanthropy and the intersection of sustainability and business. This summer, she is working on projects related to the organization’s business case and partnership ventures.
Nikki is 1% for the Planet’s newest Community Development Intern. At Champlain College, she earned a Bachelor of Science in Business as well as a Specialization in Environmental Policy. Throughout her college career, she was a member of the Sustain Champlain team, helping to incorporate green initiatives around the campus.
“I am greatly looking forward to being apart of the 1% for the Planet team! Working for an organization that enables businesses to impact positive change for the environment is a perfect fit for me. I am excited to put my time and energy into a job that shares the same passions as mine. I am enthusiastic about the work that 1% for the Planet does and am lucky to be able to spend my summer getting this great experience.”
