What is a Global Studies Internship?

SJRC's Global Studies Internship is a unique programme that combines targeted studies and hands-on experience. Our goal is to equip future leaders with the skills, knowledge, and tools to implement effective and sustainable solutions to community strengthening, modern slavery, and child protection. SJRC is a faith-based research centre located in the middle of Scotland!

 

The GSI programme begins with a 6-month internship at our training centre in Scotland and an optional additional six months at one of Global Family's international programme locations. This unique hybrid programme combines classes and practical hands-on experience emphasising social justice, identification and intervention of human trafficking, and strengthening of local communities.

Applications are received on a rolling basis.

 
 

Part 1: Scotland

In the first six months of the GSI programme, interns will work at our training centre in Falkirk, Scotland in one or more areas of nonprofit management, administration, fundraising, social media and marketing, programme and curriculum development, coding, research, and programme evaluation. Interns will also take one available SJRC course as part of the GSI programme.
