Nutrition interns join efforts with a non-profit NGO, in order to support the efforts of broad community initiatives for vulnerable populations. The project involves community outreach campaigns, monitoring and surveillance of nutritional rehabilitation, nutrition promotion and education, and the development of productive capacities.
Our internship programs include a guided reflection course, which combines personal development with professional competency building. Interns receive weekly reflection modules to complete during their program - each introduces a new topic, presents learning objectives, and provides specific prompts to inspire the reflective journaling process.
Internships in Peru are available beginning every Monday. Placements are based in Cusco city and the beautiful surrounding valleys. The locations are optimal for combining tourism activities and cultural excursions with a valuable and immersive internship experience.
