This summer with Tracks allowed me to reconnect with my inner child. With a teamfull of joy, energy, and passion, it was hard to stay serious for long.During these three months, I felt part of a bigger community, and I believe these relationships allowed me to navigate the turbulent and unknown waters of thee valuation process, which got daunting at times.
Besides the human connection, another aspect of Tracks that resonated with me was the opportunities to connect with nature. From having specific time periods designated to spending time on the land to workshops, going to a STEM camp, and helping with TRACKS’ summer camp, these activities strengthened my connection with nature and improved my well-being.
I am really glad that I chose to do my internship at Tracks, as not only did I learn about the evaluation processes but also about relationship building.
