Our Social Impact Internships

Experience the Culture 

Whilst you'll be immersed amongst the community during the internship hours through the week, the range of opportunities for additional cultural engagement and exploration beyond this period are incredible. In East Timor you can spend your downtime visiting the local markets, diving in world-renowned coral reefs, or enjoying a sunset on the beach. Regardless of how you spend your time, we encourage our teams to fully make the most of their experience overseas with us, personally as much as professionally.
