Are you an enthusiastic school leaver University or College student or just someone looking to broaden your skills and change your life by making a difference in the world?  You will get a real insight into what happens behind the scenes of a hands-on charity working in a developing world country.  Candidates must have a positive attitude and excellent writing, typing and verbal communication skills.

This internship is based at the Vine Communities’ initiative in the countries we work in.   If you have a passion for travel, helping others and working in the volunteer sector; are a self-starter, with good communication skills and an ability to work with others, this is the internship for you!

Applicants must be willing to inter for a minimum of 4 weeks.  During this period you will work for 5 days a week, 8 hours a day allowing you time to sightsee in your spare time.  Sightseeing is at your own cost. However we can provide assistance with different sightseeing options and packages.

Although you can intern for four weeks we recommend 12 weeks as a good amount of time to spend interning with us.  This allows you to fully immerse yourself in local life as well as our charitable organisation.  You may choose to extend your internship in weekly blocks up to a total of 52 weeks.

The internship is a voluntary position and you will be asked to provide a donation of $200 per week to cover your costs.
