Internship Teams

For 22 years ISL has provided short term service trips of the highest quality. We are excited to provide our volunteers with opportunities to further extend their travel, service and learning through immersive internship opportunities. We see international internships as an opportunity for individuals to develop their professional, intercultural, and language skills, all while assisting organizations that are doing important work in host countries.


Tanzania

Located on the eastern side of Africa, Tanzania is home to Africa’s highest mountain, deepest lake, largest inland body of water, largest game preserve, most famous national park, and most abundant movement of wildlife. In addition to its many geographical gems, Tanzania is also home to the Maasai, a semi-nomadic people who have maintained their distinctive customs and dress in spite of government efforts to force them to modernize.


What ISL Provides

ISL provides internship placement at the local host organization, accommodation with a host family (or in some cases a hotel/guest house), most meals, and support. Our interns receive support meetings with our internship specialists before the trip, during, and debriefing after. Additionally, local ISL staff will be available at all times while in country, including regular check-ins.
