Intern Remotely in Uganda

Program Overview

Enroll in one of our remote internship opportunities and gain real-world, professional experience and personal growth. Our online international experiences are set to meet the same goals of our traditional, in-person programs. Although learning online may require different skills and modes of communication, many of the existential advantages associated with in-person learning are supported remotely. For instance intercultural exchange, opportunities for critical reflection, career development and global citizenship qualities are all attainable.

Our remote programs meet the needs of individuals looking for a transformative and meaningful international experience without the extra cost and hassle associated with international travel. Our application process enables us to understand each applicants unique qualities and needs – we then match you to career-relevant roles that also benefit your host organization.

We can even take it a step further! You can start your intern program from the comfort of your home and then travel to Uganda to meet your host organization, make deeper connections, explore Uganda’s scenery and speak Kiswahili with native speakers. All our remote programs have an optional language component (Kiswahili) which provides cultural immersion through language learning.

During your remote internship, we will create opportunities to network with professionals and form sound relationships that in turn, can foster future opportunities and prompt the discovery of future career paths or simply further solidify your  interest in a current field. Contact us today to learn more about the benefits of interning remotely with us – our friendly staff will be more than happy to guide you on your exciting international adventure.
