Results:
Montage Initiative has partnered with Fairfield University to enhance the university’s International Studies Program through engaging students in service learning related to non-governmental organizations. This project began in the 2011-2012 school year and will continue through the 2012-2013 year and beyond. Montage Initiative involves the students in its practical work and projects by granting them the opportunity to combine their studies with the real world experience in an NGO. Montage Initiative offers internships of varying durations and volunteer opportunities to the students. The goal of this project is to prepare students for work in the non-profit sector and follow their passions for helping others.
