For 18 years FSD programs have stood at the cutting edge of global engagement.
Since 1995, FSD has been providing students with rigorous training in community development and supervised internships with our community partners in India, Uganda, Kenya, Argentina, Nicaragua and Bolivia. We offer an intense, immersive program for students looking to gain international development experience and training. We teach skills in project management, grant writing, cross-cultural communication and community organizing that will help catapault your students into high-impact careers.

FSD has built customized programs with 17 universities, and has accepted individual students from hundreds of schools across the country. We welcome discussion with universities interested in partnership or offering our programs to their students as a summer, semester or short-term experience. We strive to co-design curriculum that is at the cutting edge of producing the strongest outcomes in global education and host community impact, and we are dedicated to thinking and re-thinking best practices within the field. In 2013 we are honored to be presenting at numerous educational and international forums: to date we’ve shared our experience at Ashoka U Exchange, Forum on Education Abroad, and the Clinton Global Initiative University, and are looking forward to NAFSA, Cornell’s Global Service-Learning Institute, Middlebury’s June Institute on Social Entrepreneurship in the Liberal Arts, CIEE, and World Affairs Council and many Bay Area events.
