The Green Corps website features a photograph of the 19 original members of the "Class of 2007". 6 months into the program, only 7 of those participants are still enlisted. This photograph is just one of the many misleading aspects to the organization's recruitment practices. I urge you to thoroughly research this internship before applying, being certain to speak to participants who chose to leave the program.

Before buying the "Green Corp" story, check it out. Of the 19 that stared this year only 6 are left. It could be 0 by the end of the year. There must be a resl reason why so many dedicated young individuals would leave this program. you should talk to those that have left Green Corps and those that remain to get the true story.
