Remote social work interns have the opportunity to assist local health workers at a Tanzanian community center. The center was founded in 2010 and supports youths who are aged between 6 to 18 years. All of the youths who are served by the center live with their own families, in their own homes, but frequently attend the center (often with their mothers) to receive counselling services, participate in educational workshops, or simply to spend enjoyable social time with other young people and their families.
As part of the center’s services, local health professionals additionally make school and home visits, host workshops and seminars, and arrange leisure activities during weekends. Workshops and seminars may be related to a broad variety of topics, such as education, health, nutrition, self esteem, human rights, basic business and financial skills, etc.
Online internship activities can relate to, but may not be limited to, assisting with case management, writing reports, working on strategies and future planning for the center, social media activities, contributing to workshop and seminar design, and fundraising campaigns. Remote interns must expect to collaborate frequently with the local supervisor via Skype (or other online means) so must consider this when reflecting on the time zone and schedule for this online social work internship.
This internship is conducted in English.
