FSD training programs are highly immersive, bringing students, professionals, and retirees on-site to support critical grassroots initiatives. Rather than work on aid-based, short-term projects, participants collaborate with community partners to enhance local capacity to address health, social, environmental, and economic issues. With ongoing support from FSD Site Teams, all programs include: orientation, family homestay, language and grassroots development trainings, seed Grant + access to additional funding for strong projects, hands-on project development experience, debriefing sessions, cultural activities, and access to FSD's Alumni Connect program.
