What's In-the-Field?

Gain professional, hands-on experience in the field while having the adventure of a lifetime! GlobalGiving's In-the-Field Program gives you the unique opportunity to conduct site visits and host workshops in countries throughout the world. Check it out!

The In-the-Field Program is a way for GlobalGiving to visit our partner organizations around the world.

As a small team in Washington, DC, we work with an incredible group of field interns to help us maintain our high quality projects by monitoring hundreds of projects globally.

GlobalGiving identifies recent college graduates, masters' students, and young professionals to travel internationally for three to six months in specific countries or regions of the world. Though not required, most interns are fluent in the language of the region they are visiting. Field Interns are selected through a competitive application and interview process and participate in an intensive, three to four week training in Washington, DC., where they learn how to conduct site visits and host workshops overseas.

Field Interns are volunteers that commit significant personal time and resources to support GlobalGiving's network of community based organizations around the world. They are valuable members of the team, who bring passion, creativity, optimism, and a good sense of humor to their very important work. Meet former GlobalGiving Field Interns here.
