The World Endeavors Virtual International Internship (VII) Program is a remote learning experience focused on career readiness and the development of key professional competencies carried out anywhere with internet access.

Many students spend hours in the classroom only to graduate with no practical experience. An internship is an effective bridge between university and the workplace – giving students the confidence and experience needed to successfully pursue their chosen career after college.

Participants are paired with a host company abroad where they gain firsthand experience with a multitude of remote-working technologies, attain valuable professional skills relevant for their future careers, and learn about the business landscape of a new country – all from the comfort of their home. Through regular interactions with their internship supervisor, participants are exposed to diverse cultures and ideas, and develop critical thinking and communication skills as well as intercultural fluency, which helps prepare them for the job market.

Using various tools including online learning platforms, self-reflection assessments, and regular evaluations, World Endeavors’ virtual internships help propel participants one step closer to their intended career.

Nadine originally planned to intern abroad in Morocco with World Endeavors during the summer of 2021, but when her university cancelled student travel due to Covid, she pivoted to a virtual internship instead! As part of her program, she took 30 hours of one-on-one Arabic classes with a local instructor over Skype. Her International Relations internship was with a private Moroccan educational institution and her project centered on the use of feature films and documentaries in the promotion and teaching of Human Rights.
