The Center for Global Understanding (CFGU) is a non-profit and non- advocacy organization designed to bring people together. We believe that the only way to bring people together is through educating everyone about different cultures, religions and their values. One of our main goals is to help cultivate future Muslim American leaders through our Washington D. C. Internship program. It is very important that these future leaders have a firsthand understanding, knowledge and experience of how our democracy works and functions.

2. Academic Credits: Students will take a seminar-style class for about 3 hours one evening per week. Students may get academic credit from their college or university.
