John French Memorial Funded Intern

Notes from the Field: Hannah Petrone '17

Hannah Petrone '17 interned at the Clinton Global Initiative during 2015 Fall Term as a John French Memorial Fund intern.

The Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) was started 11 years ago as a means of assisting underprivileged areas around the world and holding global leaders accountable for promises made about their planned contributions to address the problems affecting these areas. To be a member of the organization depends on the development of a "Commitment to Action", which is an original, specific, and measurable charity plan. The staff at CGI organize events year-round to bring together these members, as well as other leaders from all sectors, including NGOs, nonprofits, and government, to both review the status of ongoing Commitments to Action as well as to discuss the most pressing challenges around the world and the most innovative ways to solve them.
