Yes, you can still intern abroad this summer! Get the experience you need to land your purpose-driven international dream job – from home.
Spend this summer analysing photos of baby sea turtles or scanning drone footage of tropical coral reefs. Alternatively, set up a fundraising campaign for a women’s empowerment organisation or teach English to social entrepreneurs.
GVI Virtual Internships include work experience with governments, NGOs and social enterprises in locations around the world, daily one-on-ones with an assigned mentor and weekly masterclasses delivered by local experts.

You’ll also be able to add several certificates from the University of Richmond and GVI to your resume.
