In July, the students from Kean University (located in New Jersey, United States) have visited The Beautiful Foundation to participate in the mini internship. The students successfully completed it through whole month of July. The Center on Philanthropy would like to share what the mini interns have done. Three groups of students chose three different non-profit organizations(NPOs) in different regions. Each group presented the comparisons on The Beautiful Foundation and the NPOs.
