Volunteer at work on an article in BoliviaInterning abroad in South America is a wonderful way to immerse yourself in a new country and culture, while gaining valuable international work and resume building experience. Whether you are interested in an internship in medicine or journalism, a variety of internships are available in Argentina, Bolivian and Peru.

Through our intern abroad program in South America, your time and efforts will be greatly appreciated and your role will be important. From working in hospitals in Niteroi, Brazil, to helping produce one of Argentina’s monthly magazines, interns will gain unique hands-on experience, as positions often offer greater responsibility and opportunities than many internships in North America. Depending on the program, interns work anywhere from 30 – 40 hours a week. While knowledge of the native language in the country where you are interning is usually not necessary, most interns will be expected to be proficient in both verbal and written English.

Through your international internship in South America, you will not only provide beneficial aid and value to your organization, but you will also help nurture a developing economy. You will learn from your placements and the people you meet while gaining further insight in a chosen field, a cross-cultural exchange in which benefits are reaped both on a personal and global level.
