An internship in community development provides you with real-life experience to expand your career development.

Our internships offer you practical experience that helps you to achieve your personal and professional goals, whether or not you desire a future career path working with children.
Eduvolgh community development interns can partake in quality role-modeling for children in communities, and provide increased access to education and a nurturing environment; mentor and teach disadvantaged children, and assist community organizations with local outreach on sustainable projects and healthcare awareness.
