Kick start your summer with Global Brigades! From month long in-country internships, to online or immersive language classes, now is the time to start thinking about how you want to spend your summer vacation.
In June 2013, we are offering the second annual Global Brigades Summer Internship. The internship is a 4-week program that will run from July 8 to August 3 in Honduras, Panama or Ghana. The internship offers a unique opportunity to work alongside program leads to perpetuate community development projects between brigades and conduct research initiatives to improve programming.

For the first several weeks after I got home from the internship, I was unable to talk about anything else. I told anyone and everyone who would listen everything I had done, learned, and experienced. Spending a whole month in Honduras working with Global Brigades and getting a glimpse of its long-term successes inspired me and brought me alive. And from conversations with my fellow interns, I know they felt the same transformation and the same desire to share their experience when they returned home. –Click here to read more about Lizzie’s Summer Internship experience
