Not only do our students get to experience a life-changing trip, we also place them on a path to career fulfillment in sustainability & give them a group to call family. These are their stories...
"I want to leave our earth in better shape than I came into it. I want to make sure that my kids and grandkids and great-grandkids can live in this beautiful world without fear of losing the very things that make it so beautiful."
"I hope to lead by example in living the life that is right for me on my path, and to inspire others to walk their own path."
"This program has completely shifted my focus to making the world cleaner and more sustainable."
"TGP is a journey to be one with endless learning, laughter and lifetime experiences."
"Before The GREEN Program, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do in life. This program inspired me to pursue a path in sustainable energy, specifically hydro electric."
"This study abroad experience taught me much more about life, energy, the environment, and global communities than I ever could have imagined."
"I want to revolutionize the world of clean energy and find ways to make it cheaper and more efficient."
"I want to leave an impact on the world by designing or implementing a source of renewable, clean energy"
"I hope to help spur the ever-growing transition to renewable energy, both through improving the technology behind it and through inspiring others to make their own impacts!"
"This unique program not only highlights the need for renewable energy, but is also a memorable learning experience for students."
"A diligent, joyful, experimental and industrious worker who believes in working for a cause, in my case Sustainable Energy."
"Driven by passion to improve energy efficiency, eliminate transmission losses and attract companies to profit from green energy, I have gained experience in the fields of thermal and energy engineering, corporate finance and oil and gas."
"A resume can show ambition, but it cannot appropriately portray the passion that I have for energy and the environment, nor the people, places and ideas that have come with exploration in this field."
"I want a career in which I can apply my engineering education to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of renewable energy systems while also working with community members to gain an understanding of how their lives can be improved."
"I want to engineer technology to create a more efficient and sustainable world."
"I want to leave the world better than I found it. From my closest family and friends, to strangers I'll never meet. From humankind to the animal kingdom. From mountains to valleys. From oceans to deserts. I want to make the most positive impact possible, and will work to whatever lengths necessary to make it happen."
"I want to use human-centered design to solve sustainability, renewable energy, transportation and engineering problems."
"When I realized I could positively impact the world and help solve its' technical problems, I knew this was the career for me."
"I felt the passion in myself and my colleagues, so I sought out to find a company motivated by sustainability and found myself at Tesla Motors!"
"GREEN helps open the eyes of the younger populations on the opportunities that are out there."
