Volunteer as a group on an Internship project overseas
Internship placements are a good opportunity for a group of students to get some experience working overseas in a different environment. The placements provide students with practical experience in handling real-world challenges. Whether it is writing articles for magazines and newspapers in Costa Rica or Romania or helping to promote human rights awareness for people in South Africa or Ghana, students can really get involved and make a difference while bolstering their own CVs and career prospects. We have a mix of groups joining programmes, from those that have no experience of the area of work to those at university studying the topic.
What you will be doing
There are a range of different internships you could join overseas. You could work on a Human Rights Project helping to promote voting rights in the townships of Cape Town or get experience working for an English language magazine based in Romania or South Africa. There are business placements where students can see how businesses run in Shanghai or Ulaan Baatar or medical placements working in hospitals and healthcare centres around the world. There are a broad range of different options which can give your group an insight into working in a different country as well as some valuable experience to add to their CV. We can introduce students to the local experts in the area they want to work in and give them work experience that you just can’t get at home.
The internship placements are often combined with other different programmes by groups. You could join an internship placement along with a community or Care Project or work on it alongside a Sports Project. There are endless combinations of projects that you could fit into your itinerary. You could spend the first week of your project doing the internship before joining a Conservation Project in the second week or you could do internship work in the morning before taking language lessons in the afternoons. We will organise the schedule to tie in with your plans. If you want to combine projects get in touch and find out what is practical for your group to do. You can call us on 01903 708316 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can put together a provisional itinerary for you.
