Latin American and Caribbean Studies - Internships
With the International Studies program, Latin American and Caribbean Studies is developing a series of internships that expose you to services and activities that involve the Latino/a community, here and abroad.
One such program is the International Executive Service Corps in Stamford that sends business executives overseas on troubleshooting missions. Interns write project evaluations of these missions.
Another internship is at Technoserve, an organization in Norwalk that supports grassroots development projects in Latin America, Africa, and Southeast Asia.
In addition, you can take the course IL 298 Internship in International Studies, which offers placements at local organizations that have an international component, such as:
- Soup kitchen
- Orphanage for disable children
- Home for disabled adolescents
- Other Catholic service agencies
