Michael McConnell, longtime regional director of AFSC's programs in the Midwest who passed away on April 7, was passionately committed throughout his time at AFSC to engaging young people in programs for peace and social justice, in ways that would build their knowledge, leadership skills, and commitment.

AFSC is establishing the Michael McConnell Youth Internship Fund to support participation of young people in AFSC’s peace and social justice programs in the Midwest Region. Donations in memory of Michael will go to that fund.
