Apply today to make a difference with HELP International!

Welcome to the landing page of our volunteer and internship opportunities! We appreciate you being here. One of the ways we fight poverty and empower people around the world is to allow people to join us abroad and work as part of our teams and alongside our international partners, building projects and co-creating change together. Volunteers typically spend four weeks to three months evaluating, designing and buliding projects, and implementing sustainable development initiatives focusing on our four main areas of focus: 1) Education 2) Public Health 3) Business and 4) Infrustructior Development. While most projects fall under one or more of these areas, other projects in other fields of interest that stem from evaluated community need and volunteer skill sets often develop as well. If you have questions about our programs, review our FAQs page, check out our social medai @helpintl, or email us at hell[email protected].

Global Health Internship

HELP International offers an internship program specifically designed for students in the medical and public health fields at both undergraduate and graduate levels. These interns will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in various health projects. Global Health interns will be placed in country based on qualifications, background, and project emphasis. Interns are integrated into our interdisciplinary teams of volunteers and are expected to be project leads over our health initatives. All levels of education and experience are welcome. Examples of past projects include: 

Medical Job Shadowing: Hands-on clinical experience in a number of health centers varying in size, location, and patient demographics. Observe and assist medical professionals in patient assessment and treatment. Gain unique exposure to diseases, illnesses, and medical practices prevalent in third-world countries.
Medical Administration and Operations: Assist in general clinic operations including record keeping, data management, patient registration systems, and organization of patients. Gain valuable experience from the unique opportunity to help a new health clinic in an impoverished rural village operate efficiently and effectively, ensuring that it can provide quality healthcare for years to come.
Community Outreach: Work with local teams to help design and implement programs on the topics of HIV/AIDS, infectious diseases, water and sanitation, maternal and child health, family planning and nutrition. Assist in research and data collection related to these topics in preparation for effective community outreach programs. Lead education initatives on these topics and more throughout our partners and target communities. 

These interns will live in the house with the HELP team in the specific country of preference and will be managed and supported by two Country Coordinators. This program is for applicants age 18 to 34 unless otherwise approved.
