Do an International Development internship with Projects Abroad and gain skills that you will use for the rest of your career, regardless of what field you move into. As you get hands-on experience in the development field you’ll learn about infrastructure and disaster management as well as aid and development in disadvantaged communities. You’ll also gain a deeper understanding of the world and the complex processes that are involved in supporting people and places to grow and prosper.
We currently have a number of International Development Projects, working to transform communities that need help. Your work could include creating campaigns, educating local communities, and facilitating existing projects.
You’ll work with local experts and Projects Abroad staff to better understand global development challenges and the work needed to overcome them.
