Role, Responsibilities and Experience

As a management intern with this effectively-run Thai NGO, you can focus your work around adults, or children.

When working with adults, you will be responsible for helping them develop basic life skills. With children, your role would focus on being an advocate for children rights and education.

As a result, no matter which path you chose, you’ll fill the need of an English-support staff member at the organization. Consequently, this role will give you incredible insights into the operations of an NGO, allowing you to take home management and organization skills.

Even more, you’ll become an integral part of the office staff, supporting the office through fundraising and donor outreach, basic status reports, and digital and social media marketing. Your office administration skills will flourish as you dedicate 8-12 weeks completing meaningful projects for the Chiang Mai and larger Thai communities.

Above all, you will get a real and tangible Thai experience, leaving with an incredible appreciation for both Thailand and it’s people.
