ShareAmerica.com – Young Americans step up for the environment
By Noelani Kirschner – Jan 5, 2024
After graduating from the University of California, San Diego, Natalie Lepska wanted to contribute to the world before continuing her education. Now she volunteers planting trees with a San Diego nonprofit and teaches others about the importance of conservation.
As a fellow with the California Climate Action Corps, Lepska can further her leadership skills before going to law school while also contributing to a healthier planet. “Being able to inspire others has been very helpful, and makes me think that I’m on the right path to a fulfilling career,” she told ShareAmerica.
California Climate Action Corps is one of a network of programs in U.S. states that enable young people to develop valuable skills while protecting the environment.
