Welcome to Our Internship Program


The Local to Global Internship program is designed to provide a transformative experience over a period of 10–12 weeks. Our goal is not only to equip you with valuable skills but also to inspire and empower you to take on leadership roles in community-based agencies, both locally and globally.

Throughout the internship, you will have the opportunity to engage with diverse organizations that are making a meaningful impact in their communities. From hands-on project work to networking with industry leaders, our program is structured to help you develop a comprehensive understanding of community development and social impact.

By connecting you to organizations doing meaningful work, we aim to cultivate a sense of global citizenship and social responsibility. Through this experience, you will gain the skills, knowledge, and perspective needed to lead and create positive change in communities around the world.

Join us in this journey of personal and professional growth, where every task, project, and interaction contributes to building a better future for communities near and far.
