Internships / Student placements
You can find possibilities of internships/ student placements in the menu above under "Volunteering & internships".
Target group for internships are for instance students who want to or have to do a practical job training as part of their studies or apprenticeship, or anyone aged 18 or older who wants to improve his or her professional experience or find a professional (re-)orientation abroad.
Such internships are an investment into your future and will improve any CV (resumé). From Europe or America it is different to arrange such internships by yourself. If you do it through us it will save you a lot of time and hassle.
For internships at private sector commercial companies and some government institutions it is mandatory to book our trouble-free package
. Through the revenue we generate from offering internships we finance our commitment to charitable causes.
For many students it can of course also make sense to do an internship with a charitable NGO. For instance medical students can take part at non-for profit medical projects, students of social work can assist at a variety of social projects, students of educational science can teach street children, business school students can assist in the management and fundraising of non-for profit NGOs and so on... Booking the trouble-free package is optional in these cases. If you book the trouble-free package however - besides all the other conveniences - we will arrange confirmations for you (prior to and after your stay - if needed) so that you can get official accreditation from you university.
How it works:
You let us know which internship you are interested in and tell us approximately when you want to do it, also please email us your CV (resumé) - for Tanzania, Zanzibar, Israel and India in English, for Morocco in French, and for Nicaragua in Spanish. Typically we can confirm your internship after a couple of days. If the internship of your choice is not available we will look for alternative options. We will not charge you anything so far. Only if you accept the internship, you will then book our trouble-free package.
If you are looking for an internship which is not (yet) listed on our website, please email us. Possibly we can offer you what you are looking for anyway. You don't have to pay anything before you accept any suggestion we will make you.
Note: Please also have a look at "World Learner" to find out if there is anything that might be interesting you for you as an internship.
