Hey,

I was wondering if anyone knows or has done an internship with a voluntour organization recently? I am doing my post diploma in international development and need to do an 8 week internship to graduate. Has anyone come across something interesting that mixes tourism and development? Any help would be great! The more Grass Route the Better!

Thank you!

Honestly the best way to do this is to just go to a country then find work when you arrive. I understand 8 weeks might be a very short time to do this but it is very very hard to find work in development when you are not in the country itself.

I work in development and the only way I would have been able to get my current (and paid) job was by being in the country.

What sort of areas are you looking at? It is best to look at countries / regions that you have a good ammount of experience in as they will look for this when assessing your application.
