Student Internships with SHARE

 

The SHARE Institute fosters the cross-cultural sharing of ideas and technical know-how by making a difference in the local community and globally. This program is specifically designed to mentor young women and men by introducing them to international development issues. The program provides global leadership skills, domestically and internationally. Participants may also be drawn from the general public based on an expressed interest in global issues.  This internship program is particularly focused on projects that promote health, education and economic well-being. There are no fees for internships conducted at the SHARE Institute's office, however, interns pay for their trips abroad if they wish to take advantage of our International Internship Program. For those interested in participating in a community service trip without leaving the country, the New Orleans Internship Program is also available.
