USFT in a Nutshell
USFT is a national network of student organizations advocating around Fair Trade principles, products, and policies.
First, we organize--we work to consolidate and coordinate the power of the over 150 active student Fair Trade organizations in the U.S.
Second, we do leadership development and capacity building, primarily through intensive international exchanges and skill-building conferences.
Third, we serve as a resource to student affiliates looking for anything from strategic campaigning advice to internship opportunities.
Put together, USFT is a comprehensive global justice organization that is not only working to develop a new generation of Fair Trade leadership, but is also contributing substantially to the movement.
