Our internship program is a unique opportunity for students, young professionals, or anyone with a hunger to learn from the amazing people of Uganda! Utilizing Musana’s development model, this internship program provides the chance to see what our values of local ownership, social entrepreneurship, sustainability, and accountability look like in practice in a community like Iganga, Uganda. Musana’s incredible Ugandan leadership is daily taking strides towards transforming their community, breaking the dependency mindset and teaching the community to BE their own catalysts for change. Our interns work alongside our local leaders and staff to experience and learn from them!
With less emphasis on task-oriented projects, this internship program focuses more on cultural emersion, building relationships, and exposure to the greatest social issues in Uganda. Our interns automatically build on their own skills and talents by engaging with different perspectives and approaches… possibly finding their own ideas transform!
Past interns have come from various backgrounds in areas that include education, public health, occupational therapy, dentistry, social work, communications, finance, and art. With very different professional paths, they had one common interest- a desire to listen and learn from local initiative!
Our internship program is open from end of May through the middle of August. Applications for the summer program are due by November 21, 2017.
