A heartfelt ‘thank you’ from our centers around the world, to each of you who made returning to these centers possible!


The past 18 months have impacted everyone, everywhere, deeply. Here at SFS, it began with the difficult decision to evacuate our faculty and staff around the world in early 2020. Thanks to your patience and steadfast support, we weathered the difficult period that followed and have returned to the field.

Today, we are back doing what we do best–living and learning with students in the incredible communities and environments where are centers are based. We are profoundly grateful to the students, staff, faculty, donors, trustees, and sending institutions that made our return to the field possible. As 2021 comes to a close, all of us at SFS send a heartfelt thank you for your commitment to SFS. Click below to hear from our team and students around the world!
