Many volunteers receive internship credit for their experience abroad.An integral part of HELP’s model entails recruiting multidisciplinary teams of students and young professionals to holistically design and execute development projects that lead to greater social impact. Our methodology is one that believes strongly that every academic or professional field is relevant, important, and critical in the global fight against poverty.HELP International’s field interns are provided unique opportunities to put theory into practice and gain real life experience related to their academia or professional career aspirations. Given the tremendous diversity of applicants we get year after year we are constantly facilitating different options for our volunteers to gain the most out of their time abroad.
