 Summer 2017 Interns (left to right) Annie Alvarado and Shelley Donaldson

“In my first few weeks at FADICA, I have especially enjoyed listening in on important issue briefings and policy calls which have allowed me to expand my knowledge of human trafficking prevention and the refugee crisis. Interning at FADICA has provided me with valuable insight into how philanthropists and nonprofits can be catalysts for change in these areas.”


Shelley Donaldson, FADICA Undergraduate Intern, Summer 2017
