- Cross Roads International: Crossroads Foundation recruits students from universities and colleges to participate in its unique, annual internship programme. Students are given the opportunity to be assistant managers in each of our many departments and to help in the running of those departments. The students in these roles will be able to work with all types of people from around the world while gaining vital, real-world English-environment work experi Roles available include working in fields such as communications & vision, accounting, administration, processing goods for distribution, shipping, computing, catering and hospitality and fair trade commerce. This is for kids 17 years and above.
Students commit to a six-week, full-time service period. The work week is Tuesday through Saturday, from 10:00am to 5:00pm. Interns will need to complete a full six week internship to receive a reference and certificate. Contact us for more details at email@example.com or to sign up, click here.

High School Specials are short-term international volunteer service projects and internships that are specifically designed for teenagers. There is a program fee and it involves a group project with other teens. High School Specials volunteers come from all around the world to join the group. Start datesare fixed so that everyone arrives and departs on the same day, staying on the project for at least two weeks and (depending on the project) up to four weeks.
