"River Bend has an intern program like no other I've found. The focus on training; improving skills and experience; developing new curricula, programs, and displays; and allowing interns to coordinate large events and county-wide waste education programs has honestly changed me as a person."
- Leah G., school year and summer intern

"If it were not for all these wonderful and varied experiences at RBNC I would not have been as well prepared for my first full time job the following year nor for the many years of programming and program management that I have had in my career. The internship gave me the basic tools that jump-started my career." - Allison D., school year intern
