2024 summer intern applications are now open!

Position Description: Summer Internship 2024
Location: Amman, Jordan

Spend the summer working for Reclaim Childhood in Jordan! The summer internship program allows current college students to experience the inner workings of a small NGO, get hands-on experience with community engagement through sport, and work on their Arabic language learning. 


The internship consists of helping organize and facilitate sports programming in Jordan.  The summer camp works with local girls aged 6-18 who are either Jordanians or refugees from Syria, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, and Palestine. When not at the summer camps, interns contribute to operational tasks for the organization. Examples include grant writing, monitoring and evaluation, communications, and social media. This provides a unique opportunity to see how NGOs really work. Finally, Reclaim Childhood conducts site visits to local community partners so interns can get a better sense of what type of work exists in the international NGO field. 

The internship is unpaid. RC strongly encourages applicants to explore funding opportunities from their colleges/universities and will work with you to fulfill the requirements of those funds.

The Reclaim Childhood internship is eight weeks long with a tentative start date of mid-June and exact dates to be determined.
