Nonprofit Internships Abroad
At Roots, we’re proud to offer a great variety of internships abroad. While our roots (pun intended) are in Africa, we have also developed a global offering of exciting opportunities. Whether you want to do field research in biodiversity conservation in the Amazon Rainforest, a business development internship with a social enterprise in Cambodia, or a customized academic research internship in Ecuador, we can find you the right match. Our international internships vary greatly in setting and cover a wide range of academic focus areas.
But what our internships all over the globe have in common is that they are all with social businesses or nonprofits; passionate teams that are doing meaningful work on a grassroots level. As an intern, you’ll add value to a cause you believe in.
Highlights of our nonprofit internships abroad:
- You’ll have a chance to gain valuable experience, network in your field, and build a relevant resume.
- You’ll get to live and work in a foreign culture, which is an exciting way to travel and explore, and helps you build adaptability and resourcefulness.
- You’ll contribute to a social impact or conservation cause, as all our global internships are with nonprofit organizations or social businesses.
- You’ll be able to take on more responsibility than with the average internship, as you’ll be a part of a small team (with big goals).
