Community Matters Fellows Tackle Social, Environmental Issues

The 22 students granted 2014 Community Matters in Maine Fellowships recently gathered in front of advisors and peers to present on their summer internship experiences. The fellows worked on a wide range of social and environmental issues, including food insecurity, fisheries conservation, access to higher education for Mainers, and town planning in Brunswick and Topsham. Take a look at the projects they accomplished and some photos from the fellowship celebration.Community Matters in Maine 2014
