Our internships contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals by the United Nations
The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice.
Intern Abroad HQ’s internship programs are designed to work towards one or more of these goals so you can support some of the most pressing social and environmental issues of our time while developing your career experience. Our aim is to go beyond sustainability by providing a regenerative way for you to see the world and develop career-ready experience. We want our interns to leave every place in a better condition than when they arrived.Learn more about our ethics
