ABOUT OUR INTERNSHIPS
Our internships are led by the Director of Human Connections, Elly Rohrer, along with the collaboration of HC’s staff and guest speakers. Interns gain international experience and improve their employability through hands-on projects, collaborations with our community members, and critical analysis of different impact models. Furthermore, this unique study abroad internship experience will deepen interns’ sense of global engagement, and immerse them in a new culture. We host a 3-week program during the winter break in December-January and a 6-week program in June-July.
We have conducted internship programs in Bucerias involving students from a diverse set of schools throughout North America. Depending upon need our program is capped at eight to fourteen participants, so we suggest you apply early if you are interested. Given the intimate nature of the program, participants tend to become close friends and often stay in contact after completing their internship.
