CARE is a leading humanitarian organization that fights to find long- term solutions to global poverty. It works in 66 countries around the world and places special focus on working alongside poor women. CARE’s emphasis is on community-based efforts to improve basic education, prevent the spread of HIV, increase access to clean water and sanitation, expand economic opportunity, protect natural resources and deliver emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters.
Interns learn about international development and global health from an NGO perspective. They work in education, public health and nutrition, finance (administrative), external relations (fundraising, marketing), human resources, sanitation and microfinance/economic development. Positions vary by project, and international interns work full time. U.S.based interns can work full or part time.
Open to currently enrolled college juniors and seniors and graduate students. Non-U.S. citizens are eligible with visas.
