I began this internship about 2 months ago and I am enjoying my job and having a great experience at ICAF. As a training ground of my career and development, I used my bilingual skills to reach out Korean companies and schools (I am originally from South Korea). By promoting connections with worldwide charities and advancing international connections, I have learned creating connections with different communities and enhancing collaborative skills. More importantly, I learned about myself to see what I am going to pursue for dream in the future. I am very positive about that those young and ambitious students would love to work with ICAF staff and to take great opportunities to see the directions of your career path. Work conditions are relaxed and very flexible so that you can always have a nice talk with people around you and there will always be someone to help you.

This is a really fascinating organization. I have seen so many incredible art works from children and the Arts Olympiad festival is more than just an art festival: it does enhance creativity through many kinds of activities! Thanks for International Child Art Foundation, which serves for such a long time to contribute to the world's most important career. I really admire it.

I've been involved with the arts ever since I was little kid. I volunteer as a mentor and was the president of a club servicing students with learning disabilities to convey their emotions through the art projects. ICAF allows me to be in a diverse environment that supports creativity within children. ICAF challenges me on a daily bases to think of art and creativity in a different way and how it impacts the world around us. I have been volunteering at ICAF for a year and each time I come into the office, I look forward to doing different activities with the staff and other volunteers.

I am a current George Washington University student studying international affairs interning here at ICAF and I have loved every day of it. Every member of the team here is all passionately working towards the same goal of spreading the values of a creative mind and self-expression in children. Dr. Ishaq is extremely dedicated and constantly brainstorming with us new ways to expand ICAF's reach. I it is a great experience to be part of this process. As an international Affairs major I enjoy working with a non-profit that operates internationally and using the globalized world to spread such amazing values. I grew up attending small schools that always emphasized the arts and creative expression, so it is really rewarding to be a part of an organization that is making it possible for children all over the world to develop to their full artistic, creative, and innovative potential.

I came to D.C. from California for an internship program and after talking to many of the other students I came with, I feel so lucky that I got an internship here at I.C.A.F. Even though the organization has an international impact, the office is small and it is an opportunity to make a meaningful difference in the world. I am currently doing outreach to schools on the West Coast for the Arts Olympiad and learning a lot about how non-profits operate. The chairman Dr. Ishaq is also very personable and makes an effort to facilitate interns' professional growth. I love working here!"

I am a currently Arts Olymiad officer at this organization. My given task is to invite as many Japanese students in the U.S as I can to the Arts Olympiad program that will be held in 2015. I found this job very fascinating so far because I can provide great art opportunities for the students from my home country to participate in the program that will improve the participants' creativity and prevent them from obesity. It is a totally innovative idea and I am glad I have a chance to work at ICAF to support the program.

I work as in intern at ICAF, I am an Arts Olympiad Officer and my job is to connect international schools and children to our program. I must say I am really impressed with what they have been doing here for the past 15 years. This small organization is truly dedicated to nurturing creativity in children. There is no other organization like it, it is truly a unique experience working for them. They are extremely passionate about what they do and I only wish to help them with their future endeavors.

International Child Art Foundation has always been serving as the best organization to encourage the children's creativity and empathy through a series of activities and programs, among which the Arts Olympiad is the most well-known, influential and wonderful. I have been interning here as a program officer for over two months and there is no doubt I am experiencing the best time in my life and learning so much in an interesting and inspiring way.

The international child art foundation is one if the most caring non-profits I have encountered. This foundation truly wants to help expand the creative minds of children all over the world. I feel like this is the only place where I will be able to meet representatives from all over the world who actually care about children arts as well. As a theatre major, interning here has also expanded my creative mind as well. Further, I have learned to be less selfish and to out those who are going to change our future first, which is our youth.
