MFF Founder Peter Morgan works with MFF Fellows.

MFF opportunities such as experiences, projects and internships are designed to complement your education and professional knowledge. Below are five personal development skills to focus on as part of your opportunity to ensure it is meaningful and beneficial to you:

  • Self-development – use an internship to develop your skills and to grow your character.
  • Initiative – take every chance you can to work hard, learn more and ask if there are other tasks, projects or assignments you can help with.
  • Communication  –  become a better collaborator and team member by listening to others and sharing your thoughts and ideas in a clear, concise and respectful way.
  • Time management – work smartly to organize your work to meet established deadlines.
  • Collaboration – work with others to meet stated goals, complete a project and have fun while doing it!

 

To participate in any of our MFF opportunities, participants must be an MFF Fellow and be 18 years of age. If under the age of 18, participants must have written consent from a parent or guardian for participation.
