Intern Abroad

An internship that makes a difference

All internships are designed to enhance skills and provide valuable work experience. An internship abroad with United Planet also builds character, provides a sense of fulfillment, and makes a meaningful difference in our world. When you do an internship with United Planet, you will return with skills, hands-on experience and a profoundly changed perspective. It’s something you just won’t find elsewhere.

Our internships are authentic, immersive experiences that expose you to a world you haven’t seen before. But you are not completely alone: United Planet provides 24/7 support during your stay. And each internship is designed specifically for the individual. Learn, work, teach, discover … and grow.

Intern Abroad with United Planet

What I enjoyed the most was getting all of the hands on medical experience with kids that previously had very little healthcare. I enjoyed seeing their faces that were filled with joy and excitement and the feeling that what my fellow volunteers and I did made a difference. The impact this has had on my life is irrevocable, being able to do some real good in this world is a rare occurrence and to be a part of it was amazing.
