Internships in Uganda
Beacon of Hope Uganda is now accepting applications for our 2017 internship program in Mukono, Uganda. Our Internship Program offers 8-24 weeks placements to capable, responsible interns to take on support and leadership positions that are essential to the effective management and successful operation of the organization. It’s an intense, immersive program for students and young professionals looking to gain international development experience and training.
Beacon of Hope Uganda is an entirely volunteer-run non-profit. Jobs on the BoHU Management Team (MT) provide unparalleled opportunities to earn invaluable professional experience in an extraordinarily challenging environment. Throughout our history, many people have surpassed their own preconceived notions of personal and professional capacities to accomplish incredible successes that have helped shape the organization as we now know it.
These volunteer interns are of paramount importance to the continuous growth and improvement of Beacon of Hope Uganda; they make a truly lasting impact in the community we serve by ensuring other volunteers have the tools they need to successfully execute projects each and every day.
The need for consistency and continuity in our management practices obliges us to require BoHU Management Team volunteers (interns) undertake a minimum service commitment of two months. The following areas are central to our ability to reach our full potential:
- Office Administration
- Financial Management & Planning
- Organizational Accounting
- Fundraising & Grant Writing (Local & International)
- Volunteer Coordination & Recruitment
- Volunteer Wellness
- Marketing & Publicity
- Public Relations & Community Outreach
- Logistical Support
- Tools & Inventory Management
- Project Coordination
- Site Assessment
Please note, additional benefits are afforded to interns who take on certain leadership roles and increased responsibility as part of the BoHU Management Team. In exchange for a 2 month minimum commitment of service, some MT volunteers/interns may receive a significant discount of their program fee or even be provided gratuitous room and board during their service, so long as they comply with BoHU rules & regulations and are able to consistently meet the established goals and objectives of the position.
Furthermore, both construction and community development projects require strong leadership from capable and committed volunteers. Therefore, we ask volunteers with technical expertise – whether acquired before or after arriving at BoHU – to help guide other team members by ensuring they are prepared and properly trained to effectively execute the tasks required of a particular project. They are also responsible for coordinating with the Director and other members of the BoHU Management Team as well as ensuring quality monitoring and evaluation.
