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 will 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 in January and a 7-week program in the summer.
We have conducted many internship programs in Bucerias involving students from a diverse set of schools throughout North America. Our program is usually capped at fourteen participants, and given the intimate nature of our program and housing, participants tend to become close friends and often stay in contact after completing their internship.
