ALUMNI TESTIMONIALS
“Every week there’s something new, something that will help my future wherever it may lead. Everything from meeting TFAS alumni to hearing what grad school recruiters are looking for has helped me understand what I want to do with my future. I have made several professional contacts through these events and have already started to reach out to them. There is no way I could have been able to interact with this variety of people just going through the summer with a normal D.C. internship.”
Conner Foote, William Jewell College
Intern, Navajo Nation

“My internship was an amazing opportunity; not only did I get to develop skills that are crucial in the professional world, but it opened doors that I can access in the future. It gave me the opportunity to meet individuals that provided me with new perspectives on the field I am interested in.”
Dacia Medley, Florida Atlantic University
Intern, U.S. Department of Agriculture

IC3 Academy Meaningful Summer Program

IC3 Academy Meaningful Summer Program
Meaningful Summer is run through the IC3 Academy, a program to introduce participants to ideas, opportunities and resources to foster personal growth, community development
and ultimately global change. The Meaningful Summer Program is specifically targeted to
undergraduate students looking for opportunities to expand their skillset, gain international
work experience and make a meaningful contribution to the world. The IC3 Academy is looking
for individuals with exceptional leadership qualities from diverse backgrounds.
Prior to internship placement, participants are expected to attend a 7-day intensive course in San Jose, Costa Rica. The week is carefully designed to encourage participants to address their “why”: what are they hoping to gain from the experience and for what purpose? Facilitators are experts in the fields of international development, social entrepreneurship and non-profit management.
After workshops that address personal growth (values, vision, the power of personal narrative),
participants begin to address their professional and educational goals with topics including:
– fundraising
– vehicles of social change
– grant/proposal writing
– logic models and theories of change
– social media for social innovation
By the end of the week, participants will have a clear outline of their expectations for the
summer, as well as a deeper understanding of professional opportunities in the fields of social
entrepreneurship, intrapreneurship and international business and development.
Internships are varied and with the exception of one location, involve grassroot organizations
in low income countries. Opportunities and structure vary but all locations require a full-time
commitment for a minimum of 2 months. Locations include:
– Phillippines: Media and marketing internship
– Guatemala, Peru and Costa Rica: opportunities in special education, education,
microbusiness and tourism
– Uganda: microbusiness, community development and education
– Nepal: community development, journalism/marketing and education
– New Zealand: non-profit management, fundraising and event planning and grant
distribution
