Global Service Corps (GSC) is pleased to announce the launch of 4 new and improved Internship Programs in Tanzania
The following GSC internships are ideal for both adults interested in a long-term service project overseas, and students looking to gain academic credit or to fulfill University internship and service requirements. Academic credit can be arranged through SUNY-Albany or through your own college or university.

The Community Training Internship
The Community Training Internship is designed for individuals who are specifically interested in working with community groups and would like to dedicate at least nine full weeks (or more) to conducting community trainings and program monitoring and evaluation (M&E). Community Training Interns may choose to focus on either HIV/AIDS prevention and care or Sustainable Agriculture. By the end of the internship, Community Training Interns will have gained valuable training experience in their chosen field, as well as in monitoring and evaluation skills.

The International Health Internship
The International Health Internship is designed for individuals interested in pursuing a career in health, especially those interested in International or Public Health. After completing four-weeks of community training inn HIV/AIDS education, Health Interns divide their following five weeks between shadowing medical staff at local healthcare facility in the mornings, and pursuing an additional community development project in the afternoons. Interns will be able to choose from several community development project options, including working with a local orphanage and, when appropriate, assisting GSC’s Community Development Interns with on-going development projects.

The AIDS and Agriculture Integrated Internship
The AIDS and Agriculture Integrated Internship is designed for individuals with multiple programmatic interests, and allows individual volunteers to participate in both the HIV/AIDS and Sustainable Agriculture short-term programs offered in Tanzania. The Internship requires a nine-week minimum commitment to allow for effective volunteer orientation and training within each discipline. Two options are available:
Option 1: Three to six weeks of community training in HIV/AIDS prevention and care, followed by three to six weeks (minimum) of community training in Sustainable Agriculture.
Option 2: Three to six weeks of community training in Sustainable Agriculture, followed by three to six weeks (minimum) of community training in HIV/AIDS prevention and care.

The Community Development Internship
The Community Development Internship is designed for individuals who are specifically interested in International Development and in gaining first-hand experience working with specific community development projects. After completing four-weeks of community training in either HIV/AIDS or Sustainable Agriculture, CDI volunteers devote the remaining five weeks or more of their internship to exploring the intricacies of international development by assisting in the development of one of GSC’s sustainable community development or partnership projects. CDI development projects for HIV/AIDS interns include assisting GSC in-country staff in program development, supporting GSC’s Peer Education Health Clubs with HIV/AIDS training and materials, working with the local organization Women In Action (WIA), and working with local orphanages. CDI development projects for Sustainable Agriculture interns include improving and expanding GSC’s agricultural demo plot, working with local farm groups on their own demo plots, and working with GSC’s Peer Education Health Clubs to develop school gardens.
