Every fall, KID welcomes several University of Chicago student interns through the federal work study program. Read on to meet our 3 new interns and the goals they have for the year. Are you also interested in getting involved with our work? Then please check out our volunteer opportunities to learn how.
A safety fact I learn at KID: ” I didn’t realize that soft bedding was dangerous for babies and infants!”
A goal for the year: “I would like to press companies and resale stores to be as committed to raising awareness about recalls of dangerous products as they are to advertising new products.”
A safety fact I learn at KID: “I didn’t realize how little safety standards really existed for children’s products! It surprises me that it has been a fight for achieving them, rather than a given thing.”
A goal for the year: “My goal this year is to help encourage companies to think about consumer safety before profits.”

A goal for the year: “My goal as a new development intern at KID is not just to be effective in increasing funds, but also to use development as a way to foster advocates for children’s product safety and health. “
