Thank you for your interest in working with Foundation for Sustainable Development!

Every year we place hundreds of young adults and professionals with grassroots organizations around the world to complete internships in health, environmental sustainability, youth & education, financial inclusion, gender equity, water & sanitation, and more! Unique among volunteer programs, FSD’s programs let you work directly in service-based internships or do international research in a broad range of fields.

As an FSD intern, you will work alongside community members to design a sustainable project, then actually implement the project during your time abroad. The ground-up, results-oriented nature of our work is one reason why Kate Otto of The Huffington Post called us “the gold standard in international development.”

How to start?

Send us an email and let us know that you are interested! Somebody from our international programs team will contact you to discuss the program and answer any questions you may have.
