"FSD provides rich educational programming, proven health and safety protocols, and competent professional coordination by host country nationals." - Julie Reed, PhD. Associate Director, Haas Center for Public Service, Stanford University

Dear Friends,
 
Warm greetings from the Foundation for Sustainable Development (FSD) in San Francisco. I myself am one of the leaders of the Black Student Union of San Francisco State University and am proudly working at FSD’s headquarters while completing my studies in international relations.
 
We would like to extend an exciting and unique internship opportunity to your students:  the chance to spend anywhere from several weeks to a full year providing hands-on support to grassroots development at any of FSD’s 10 sites in Africa, Latin America, or India. As a Black student, I found my volunteer trip in Africa to be a life-changing experience: I built many meaningful relationships, was able to serve families in need, and was immersed in an warm and vibrant culture that shares similarities with my own ancestral heritage. In fact, I have shared my experience with many other Black students who are increasingly choosing to participate in programs like the ones FSD facilitates in order to extend what they learn in class, and get in touch with various African traditions, cultures, and history.
 
Through FSD’s program, students will acquire valuable leadership experience, develop globally sought-after skills and knowledge of sustainable development and gain unparalleled insight into unique cultures. This first-hand experience-will benefit not only the student’s academics once s/he returns to school, but also greatly heightens his or her post-graduation employment prospects. Our alumni have been accepted into the most respected graduate programs and have careers at major international non-governmental organizations (NGO’s).
 
FSD training is both rigorous and rewarding, providing programs that are highly immersive--students learn key development topics, are trained in project design and management, and gain practical experience in community-based development. All students will collaborate with NGO community partners to enhance local capacity to address such areas as health, human rights, resource management, youth education, environmental sustainability, economic issues and more. Our internships involve home-stays, an on-site orientation, and practical training in development tools such as grant-writing and project design and management to ensure that the work done makes a lasting impact on both the student and the community.
 
FSD currently works successfully with many American colleges, including Duke University, University of California at Berkeley, Stanford University, and Northwestern University to provide internships and service learning trips for students seeking training and hands-on experience in grassroots development work. We are proud to have also hosted several students from Historically Black Universities in the past such as Austin Thompson from Howard University and Shevaun Culmer from Spelman College. Students work with a local NGO that fits their area of interest and are responsible for developing projects based on community priorities.
 
Our programs can be tailored to meet the academic needs and interests of a wide variety of departments and faculties. Many faculties are using FSD programs as a field practicum phase or to meet internship requirements for their departments and majors. More information can be found on our university programs page
. Students who may be otherwise independently interested in our programs can click the following links for more information about intern abroad programs; to see how our programs have helped launch careers, please see the attached alumni spotlight page.
 
For further information, please read these documents, which detail our programs: Intern Abroad, Group Engage and Global Service Trips. David Andrusia, Director of Marketing and Communications, would also be happy to speak with you and answer any questions you may have. Please contact him at: david@fsdinternational.org.
 
I look forward to providing any further information you may need, as would our international program officers and other staff.
 
Kind regards,
Samera Edwards
