Internship details

Support refugees and migrants in Morocco and gain practical work experience with NGOs by interning remotely from home.

This is a remote internship you can undertake virtually from home. Click here to view in-country internships in Law & Human Rights Support, if you would prefer to intern abroad.

This remote internship program in refugee support and migrant rights out of Morocco serves to promote human rights and provide basic services to disadvantaged refugees and migrants. Interns are placed with the only NGO in the city of Rabat that works with migrants and refugees to give them a place of solace and teach new skills. If you have an interest in human rights and teaching, you can gain career-relevant international experience and make a meaningful difference.

Virtual interns can gain insight into the lives of migrants living in Morocco and have scope to contribute to educational programs for them. These may be taught in English or French. Educational oriented activities are coordinated in collaboration with the local supervisor, involving effective communication strategies and the development of worksheets and tests, to encourage learning and assess progress.

Interns also contribute to the wider picture of migrant rights by supporting fundraising and awareness campaigns. Those with design or communications skills can help to build content and resources for the NGO’s website. All internship tasks are arranged in collaboration between the intern and local coordinator/supervisor.

In all cases, interns should expect that the initial phase of their remote internship will focus on gaining some introductory knowledge. You may start by gaining an understanding or overview of what you can build upon, develop, learn, and contribute. Ensure that you ask questions and provide feedback during the introductory period, so that your supervisor understands how you’re progressing. This will help them to better understand important details, such as how quickly you learn, what you find challenging, what you find interesting, etc.

Understand and expect that individual internship experiences vary. Therefore, if you’re at a more introductory level, you should reasonably expect a more introductory internship. Likewise, if you’re interning for a shorter duration, you will have a different experience from someone who is interning for a longer duration. Placement preferences are considered but always subject to availability.
