Student Testimonial 










"The International Masters Program at the Porter School was an incredible opportunity to learn from some of Israel's top environmental leaders, and make connections in the national movement. I've been an environmental activist since moving to Israel, but this program enabled me to deepen my understanding and knowledge of global and local environmental issues, and turn my passion into my profession."
