Review for Foundation for Sustainable Development, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I found out about FSD through my search for a volunteer abroad organization to work with for a summer. I was struck by their unique approach to development and the clear commitment and focus they had for their mission. This led me to speak with their staff who immediately struck me with their enthusiasm and reflected the exact commitment that had initially drawn me to them. Since then I have gone on to volunteer with FSD which has truly been a life changing experience for me. Not only do I feel that I have grown personally but I have also learned more from my experience with FSD than I have with any other volunteer organization or internship.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Their local office and the communities they have impacted

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
