Internship Program 2010-2011
The World Care Internship Program has been an important part of the organization’s mission for over ten years. As part of an active non-profit organization, interns will be exposed to the world of humanitarian aid as it relates to economics, foreign aid, disaster relief and public policy and world events. Interns can work on both a local and international level exploring the inner workings of non-profit organizing and the powerful impact humanitarian aid has on the world. Interns will also be exposed to topics of discussion such as culture and society, economics, gender inequalities in community and foreign environments, policy and government stability and human rights.
Past participants come from a wide range of backgrounds including business, science, public health, language and humanities. World Care is looking for individuals with a strong interest in serving both local and world communities. As an active non-profit organization, we are looking for open-minded, motivated and dedicated individuals who are committed to helping World Care in its mission of service.

Interns must be part-time or full-time students at an accredited academic college or university. Undergraduates, post-graduate and graduate candidates are considered based on application placement availability.
As this internship is unpaid, students may pursue internship/independent study credit from their home institution by submitting a course description and evaluation on tasks performed. World Care itself does not provide course credit and is not part of any specific undergraduate or graduate program. However, we are more than willing to work with colleges and universities to make sure that interns can fulfill their institution requirements.
**A note on balancing school and internship. World Care understands that students have very busy schedules and are willing to work around this. However, a level of commitment of around 10 hours per week is required.
