ISL Global Internships

Since 1994, ISL has provided short-term service trips to volunteers looking for practical experience through medical, education, and community enrichment programs. We are excited to further extend these opportunities through immersive internships. These internships enable volunteers to develop their professional, intercultural, and linguistic skills, all while assisting organizations that are doing important work in our host countries. We strive to meet a very high standard of quality for both the intern and the recipients of our services. For this reason, internship applicants are thoroughly screened to ensure they are prepared to navigate a new culture and country in partnership with ISL. We provide interns with pre-departure training on the host culture, familiarize them with the support available in-country, and provide them with post internship reentry support for physical, mental, and emotional health. If you are interested in our internship opportunities, please review the Global Internship Catalog. Here you will find all of our internships currently available. If you do not see an internship that fits your vision, we can work with you to create a custom internship. Simply fill out the custom Internship form found on our website.


Note: the deposit is the payment to reserve your internship, if you do not pass the application or cannot travel you will be refunded.
