My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Berkshire Environmental Action Team, Pittsfield, MA, USA
As a student studying Environmental Studies, I sought out BEAT as an opportunity to have an internship in my desired field. For the past 6 weeks, I have learned about not only protecting the environment through non-profit work, but also about environmental issues within the community I have grown up in for twenty-two years. My experience with BEAT has exposed me to inner workings of a non-profit seeking to protect the environment in infinite ways. BEAT never stops at just one sector of environmental protection or one issue, they have their hands and minds in all aspects from community initiatives to local government to state government. BEAT is making not only Berkshire County a better place for wildlife and humans, but also across the state and surrounding areas. BEAT effects tangible and concrete change to protect our environment.
As a young person in Berkshire County, my time at BEAT has illustrated the opportunities that are available within my interests as well as all the vibrant community happenings that are going on on a daily basis. I have been inspired by all that can be done within our community and the positive changes that have been and will be accomplished.
