Once interns have been accepted into our internship program, they will work with the Global Education Program Director and their assigned VL staff supervisor to develop a detailed work plan that outlines project goals and objectives. Once in country interns begin their time with an orientation to learn about the organization, the communities we work with, and the work they will be contributing. Summer León Interns stay with host families in León, where they are welcomed into a new and wonderful culture. Several hours are allotted to interns for in-office work as well as several hours a week for fieldwork in Goyena, a rural town that neighbors León. After work hours, interns are free to explore the beautiful city of León. In addition, weekends are free for interns to experience Nicaragua’s breathtaking country. Spanish classes are also available for students who wish to improve their language skills.
