Have you considered living for a semester in a foreign country? How would you like to make a significant impact while earning BYU credit and gaining valuable international work experience? This is the academic internship for you! During winter semester 2017, leave freezing Provo for sunny and warm Latin America and the Caribbean, where you will intern with LDS Self-Reliance services. Selected interns will work closely with the local LDS self-reliance-PEF managers and stake and ward self-reliance leaders to help organize and facilitate Church self-reliance groups. The main objective of the self-reliance groups is to help individual members learn to become more self–reliant. The Church’s self-reliance program material teaches members self-reliance principles in the areas of leadership, education, employment, and small business development.
This internship will offer you the opportunity to learn from and serve others, to further enhance your foreign language skills, to gain valuable international work experience, and to receive academic internship and other BYU credit. Imagine living in an apartment in a foreign country, where you blend, learn, teach, and train with only the locals. There are limited spots available and the application deadline (Wednesday, 5 October) is approaching soon, so apply today. To learn more about LDS Self-Reliance Services, click here.
