Become a Summer Intern

As a Summer Intern with Manna Project, you will embark on a 4-to-8 week adventure working within a community in Nicaragua or Ecuador. You will use your energy, passions and intelligence to contribute to development programs in your area of interest. This firsthand experience will improve your language skills, change the way you see the world and leave you wanting more!

Summer Interns live alongside other young leaders and community members, and are fully integrated into the daily functions of Manna Project’s work on the ground. Weeks are spent collaborating with staff to plan and facilitate programs, while weekends are for exploring. As the days progress, you will develop an understanding of long-term development goals and their implementation.

This unique internship program is designed to create the most impactful experience for you and the communities you’ll serve. Summer Interns are equipped and inspired to continue their work in a variety of career fields, including international development and the greater non-profit sector. Many Summer Interns return to Manna Project as Program Directors in following years.
