Interested in working at an NGO? Want to travel abroad? We’ve got an internship for you!
Travel abroad and get involved in bettering your new community. Interns are placed within both grassroots 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 underserved populations, both local and immigrant, and many more. Unlike a for-profit company, oftentimes there is less structure in NGO placements, so these organizations are searching for good candidates who are flexible and can see the bigger picture. These amazingly diverse international placements look good on any resume and tend to change a person for the better.
Candidates placed in NGO’s (non-governmental organizations) in Spain often do legal, social, marketing, and other administrative work. Past NGO placements include C.EA.R (Comision Espanola Ayuda al Refugiado), Proyecto Hombre, Amnestia Internacional, A.C.U.L.C.O. among others. These organizations re ante from immigrants’ rights services to assisting drug addicts to integrate back into society.

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 psychologically and medically.
Work within a Vocational Education Social Project, with a group that focuses on vocational training, providing youth shelters, and creating school presentations to extremely poor areas around Montevideo. Be a part of this grassroots, local community setting inside of this growing social project.
