Program Description:
Why Intern with Kaya, Virtually?

Gain real-world skills and build your resume; become a global citizen and learn about another culture; help contribute to a capacity building-project at an organization pushing for positive change. This is a great opportunity to learn transferable virtual and soft skills as you prepare to embark upon your future career!

No matter your major, you can trust that your internship is aligned with Kaya’s mission to promote sustainable social, environmental, and economic development. Additionally, alongside your project placement, you will have the chance to learn all about your host country by engaging in interactive cultural workshops and connecting with a local buddy your age.

Your institution may already be affiliated with Kaya to provide these credits, so ask a Kaya advisor for more details first!
