Internships Abroad

Internships Abroad: Placements in Development

Interning is a great way to learn, grow and develop within your career or on a personal level. It’s focused on training on the job, getting fully hands on and adding new skills to your CV, whilst building on your interpersonal skills. But our volunteering internships are a lot more than that. Our volunteering internships offer the appeal of travelling to new places, meeting new people, and most importantly of all, helping poor, disadvantaged communities along the way. Our internships are internships with a difference; they give you the unique opportunity to give back. We’ll take you to the most beautiful, moving and exotic destinations with a truer purpose. So that you can find deeper meaning in your work and touch the lives of those you meet.

But the biggest part of your internship experience with Volunteering Journeys is all about broadening your own horizons, expanding your mind and enhancing your experience of life on our planet.

We’re big believers in community living and having the chance to socialise with likeminded people, so providing seamless and exhilarating cultural immersion is at the top of our list. Our internship programs abroad will allow you to make amazing friendships as you travel and all of our volunteers are notoriously friendly, compassionate and kind. So no matter where you take your internship with us in India, Thailand, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Mozambique or beautiful Cambodia you’ll never feel alone.

Our internship programs include teaching abroad available in various locations, Social and International Development workmarine conservation, animal conservation work, medical placements for medical or pre-med students in any field, disabled care volunteering or sports coaching with children. You can also get human rights and legal work internships with charities and established local grass root organisations.

All our internship programs are for a minimum of 4 weeks.

Our Internships are a double whammy

“The direct correlation that internships have to potential career paths, make internship opportunities a great fit for students who want to maximize their investment in an experience abroad. If you are drawn to sharpen your soft skills, but also wouldn’t mind coming home with some new professional skills in your repertoire too, then interning abroad is the international experience for you.Top that up with living in exotic locations- thats killing two goals with one adventure!”
