Available around the world
There is an increasing emphasis on the environment and sustainability around the world. Whether you choose to work in a developed country like Spain, or a developing on like South Africa, many of the challenges are identical even as the conditions, politics, and financial resources that shape the response are very different.
In the past, interns have worked in areas including environmental engineering, urban planning, alternative energy, job creation and community development, climate change, public policy, water pollution, monitoring biodiversity and the wildlife trade, recycling programs, green festivals, and environmental education in schools.

What our Interns say
Connect-123 provided exciting excursions that really allowed my classmates and me to explore all that Cape Town has to offer. My internship at a nonprofit institute dedicated to environmental conservation and education taught me about how sustainable development can aid in economic development. It was inspiring to work with people who care so much about these important issues and I am excited to follow this example in the US. Thank you Connect-123 for this amazing opportunity!

The Connect-123 team was incredibly helpful and supportive the entire way, they went above and beyond to make sure everything was running smoothly and to make sure I was comfortable. The NGO that I worked with worked alongside the Ministry of Sustainable Development. My favorite part, personally, was working with the schools! We would go to schools throughout Buenos Aires, from elementary to high schools, and from public to private schools, in order to give environmental workshops.
