FSI and the Ford Dorsey IPS program will be hosting Mercy Corps as they visit campus to speak about their Global Internship Program.
The Mercy Corps Global Internship Program offers exploration into future careers in international relief and development while supporting our beneficiaries in their local communities in 25 countries around the world. Their internships revolve around a particularly demanding mission - to help people on the ground turn the crises they confront into the opportunities they deserve. Driven by local needs, our programs provide communities in the world’s most challenging places with the tools and support they need to transform their lives.
Mercy Corps is an international relief and development organization working in over 40 countries worldwide helping people build secure, productive and just communities. From poverty and malnutrition to natural disasters and global warming, Mercy Corps sees an opportunity to create transformative change. In crisis, we believe in the power of human potential. Mercy Corps connects people to the resources they need to build better, stronger lives.
