Big news! We have extended our international internship application and will be reviewing applications on a rolling basis.

To better ensure the safety of our students, staff, and partners, we expect all of these internships to be offered virtually. While not being able to travel physically is unfortunate, we have no doubt that a virtual internship with an international partner will bring a host of impactful benefits, from global networking to a chance to make a difference for a community across the world. Apply fast, as we will only be reviewing applications on a rolling basis for a limited time. Access the application through the link in our bio!

As we approach the start of a new semester, we are excited to highlight one of our former international interns! Morgan Paul completed a KISI internship at Stellar Child Care Organization in Andong, Cambodia (on the outskirts of Phnom Penh). This organization focused on health, safety, and education for the surrounding village residents. On determining what made her internship impactful, Morgan remarks, "My internship was a valuable experience because it pushed me to problem solve while acknowledging that I had more to learn than I had to give SCCO. I learned how to be patient and yet persistent when looking at very broad social issues- all of which were not going to be resolved in the 8 weeks I had in Phnom Penh. My internship offered a balance of collaboration and autonomy so I never felt truly alone, but I was still pushed outside my comfort zone to grow and learn, and I am truly thankful for the experience." If you are looking for your own international internship opportunity, applications are OPEN for 2021 summer internships! Apply by January 19th here: gokelley.iu.edu/internwithpurpose

Throwback to when KISI alumna Nellie Li decided to do more with her Spring Break by choosing to spend her days off from school with Alternative Break Program (ABP). Nellie participated in ABP from 2014 to 2018. Now, she is graduated and working at Deloitte as a Business Technology Analyst, but the impact she made at IU has not been forgotten!

“ABP was the common thread throughout my four years at IU. From translating storytelling videos for the Rich Coast Project in Costa Rica, building bottle schools with 7elements in the Dominican Republic, teaching English classes with International Rescue Committee in Atlanta, and creating a governance model for a sewing center for Dara in Cambodia, each of my experiences was surrounded by the wonderful students that make up KISI. The impact we were able to make in each community is made possible by the bright minds and caring hearts of KISI members.”

We want to send a big thank you to Nellie Li for her social impact as a student, helping to create KISI's legacy and Decade of Difference!

For our #socialimpactsummer series, we'll highlight how businesses are using their platforms and resources to give back to the communities around them.

Beyond Meat, founded in 2009, is donating over 1 million Beyond Burgers to food banks, hospitals, and community organizations around the country. With nominations through their employees and partnered ambassadors, they have donated to Houston Food Bank, Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, and the Ali Forney Center to offset food insecurity caused by the COVID-19 crisis.

“Our goal has always been to use food as a vehicle for change and we’re fortunate to be in a position to put that into action now like never before. Our hope is that this donation will help make lives easier and contribute to the strong sense of community that is so vitally important during these unprecedented times.”

As a school, as a community, and as individuals, we need to do our part to stand up against racism and injustice. As we mourn the recent deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and so many others, we encourage everyone to educate themselves and take action against racism and hatred. If you're looking for a place to start, Kelley Student Government has put together a list of some resources and action steps. The fight is ongoing. We must all do better, together.

Throwback to when KISI alumna Mia Kinder joined KISI through a variety of avenues, giving her many opportunities to connect with the people that would inspire her future. Among many KISI clubs and events, Mia participated in a trip to Costa Rica with ABP to support the Rich Coast Project in 2017. Now she has graduated and is currently working at Deloitte as a Consultant for Strategy & Operations, but her impact that helped build KISI's Legacy is still remembered today!

“ABP was the common thread throughout my four years at IU. From translating storytelling videos for the Rich Coast Project in Costa Rica, building bottle schools with 7elements in the Dominican Republic, teaching English classes with International Rescue Committee in Atlanta, and creating a governance model for a sewing center for Dara in Cambodia, each of my experiences was surrounded by the wonderful students that make up KISI. The impact we were able to make in each community is made possible by the bright minds and caring hearts of KISI members.”

We wish we could see everyone back on campus this semester, but more importantly we want everyone to be healthy. Let's all do our part to protect each other.

Flatten the curve by practicing social distancing. The more we stay at home, the faster we can all see each other again.

As members of a local community, it is the responsibility of those who are able to provide a voice for the underrepresented. Everyone deserves advocates that truly represent their best interests. This belief applies to all people regardless of age, color, gender, sexual orientation, etc. Thus, we are proud to continue promoting the work of Monroe County CASA.

CASA or Court Appointed Special Advocates is a volunteer program that "provides representation in juvenile court for child victims of abuse and neglect." Through their comprehensive volunteer program, CASA is able to provide representation for children who become abruptly placed in the overburdened foster care system.

Beyond legal representation and advocacy, CASA volunteers also become consistent adult presences of support. This is exemplified by Sarah's story, in which she states "I've had several case workers...but my CASA was the only one who continued to be here for me during these years."
