Internships

Internships, in Canada or abroad, offer you hands-on experience in working with organizations involved in international development. Start by finding an organization that focuses on an aspect of international development that interests you.

Explore their website to see what internship opportunities are available. Each organization will have its own requirements (including age), as well as its own process for selecting successful applicants. Lengths of internships terms will vary.
