We welcomed an intern from University of Vermont to give The Clean Transportation Path© project webinar presentations in Vermont driver education and high school STEM education classes.


This volunteer intern, a sophomore, majors in Environmental Studies and Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies. The intern states, "I am a strong advocate for the shift to energy-efficient vehicles and the widespread use of public transportation, so as to limit individual and community impacts on climate change and air quality." This is Green Driving America's fifth intern presenter since 2021. Volunteer interns, while not considered organization employees, are paid a stipend for each presentation.
