Interested in interning in the Spring? Apply to a 2020 Spring Internship now and intern as early as March 2020.
Travel abroad and get involved in bettering your new community. Interns are placed within both grass roots organizations and larger international non-profits. This sector is huge: choose to aid a political cause, abused women, drug addiction, street children, cancer awareness, LGBTQ issues, health education, massively under served populations, both local and immigrant, and many more. Unlike a for-profit company, there often times there is less structure in NPO placements, so these organizations are searching for a good candidate who is flexible and gets the bigger picture. These amazingly diverse and international placements look good on a Resume and tend to change a person, far and away for the better.

Montevideo has a small but important sector of non-profits dedicated to serving where service is lacking, especially public health. In a clinic or hospital setting, volunteers assist with community work in the OB/GYN sector; outreach to populations that might not feel comfortable coming to a hospital; pediatrics and family events to educate, serve and assist both psychologically as well as as technically/medically.
Work within a Vocational Education Social Project, with a group that focuses on vocational training, providing youth shelters, and creating school presentations to extemely poor areas around Montevideo. The goal is a career or job for everyone; be a part of a grass roots, local community setting inside of this growing social project.
