The Fresh Air Fund

About The Fresh Air Fund

Since 1877, The Fresh Air Fund has unlocked the limitless potential of 1.8 million New York City children from low-income communities. Each year, nearly 7,000 children enjoy outdoor summer adventures through visits with volunteer host families along the East Coast and Southern Canada and at The Fund’s five overnight camps in Fishkill, NY. Fresh Air children also participate in year-round leadership and educational programs.


Friendly Towns Intern

May 2019 - August 2019 New York City, NY
“I really enjoyed how collaborative the environment of the office was. The space I was given to work in as an intern not only had other interns in it, but also had my supervisors, making it very easy to ask questions and receive help when necessary. I also enjoyed how much trust my supervisors put in myself and the other interns. throughout the summer they trusted us with many different projects that could have easily been given to someone higher up. I think this really allowed me to grow my workplace skills.”
