With this internship, you’ll work at an education hub. The goal of the hub is to help teens and adult students become as independent as possible.

As an education intern, you’ll help teachers develop meaningful classroom curriculum. You will also help create alternative programs that foster independence, literacy, social skills, and career opportunities. Better yet, you’ll be able to support students and teaching staff in mainstream classes, along with alternative educational activities. Some of these activities include swimming, Equine Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and work experience placements.

This education internship will help you develop various skill sets. You’ll be sure to need them in your career as a teacher or social worker.

Here are just a few things you’ll be able to add to your resume:

creative problem-solving

About Your Accomodation

Apartment

An apartment shared with other interns in the city means you’ll be shopping for and preparing your own meals, and sharing cleaning duties and communal living spaces. World Internships can arrange safe and secure apartment housing for you within a reasonable commute time to your internship site.

Independent Housing

Independent housing allows you to opt out of our arranged accommodation options (and the associated fees) and find your own. This option works best when you have friends or family members living in your destination, or a strong housing lead that you feel comfortable pursuing.
