Intern in South America

Interning abroad in South America is wonderful for volunteers seeking to immerse themselves in a new country and culture, while gaining valuable international work and resume building experience. Whether you are interested in an internship in Medicine, Journalism, or Veterinary Medicine & Animal Care, a variety of internships in a wide range of settings and fields are available in Argentina, Bolivia, and Peru.

Through our intern abroad program in South America, your time and efforts will be greatly appreciated and your role will be important. From working as a journalist at an English-language magazine in Cochabamba, Bolivia, to raising awareness of human rights at the Projects Abroad Human Rights Office in Cordoba, Argentina interns will gain unique hands-on experience, as positions often offer greater responsibility and opportunities than many internships in North America.

Depending on the program, interns work anywhere from 30 - 40 hours a week. Most internships in South America require at least intermediate Spanish to be able to make a close connection with colleagues, clients, and patients.

Through your international internship in South America, you will not only provide beneficial aid and value to your organization, but you will gain useful skills to boost your resume. You will learn from your placements and the people you meet while gaining further insight in a chosen field, a cross-cultural exchange in which benefits are reaped both on a personal and global level.
