Foundation for Sustainable Development

The Foundation for Sustainable Development was founded in 1995 to support the efforts of local development organizations working to improve the welfare of the people living in their communities. FSD provides these grassroots organizations with human resources, financial resources, and technical assistance. Our primary goal is to increase their capacity to serve their communities. In striving to achieve this goal, other benefits emerge: we raise awareness of the challenges faced by those in the developing world, we train the development leaders of tomorrow, and we facilitate increased cross-cultural understanding.



Join the hundreds of American College and University students who travel to Europe, Austria, Asia, and South America each summer, or for a few months, to live and work in paid positions. Through ICE, you will gain invaluable international work, culture, and language experience which you will carry with you the rest of your life. Since ICE has placed more than 16,000 students in work/internship positions. ICE students have worked at automobile plants in Germany, schools in China, supermarkets in Japan, and in Aboriginal communities in Australia. Each working experience is unique and tailored to the student's interests, language ability, and goals.
