Project information

Project description

Interns have the flexibility to create their own schedule with the local partner, and together create a plan of action of goals to achieve whilst working together. For this reason, it is important that the word “partner” remain key throughout the experience. Interns have expertise to offer, however all goals should be created together with the staff so the outcomes are sustainable even after the intern returns home.

Goal: Work together with AA staff and their community projects in terms of promoting their work.
