Every year, Titagya Schools selects a small number of highly-motivated interns to help with teaching, curriculum development, and fundraising in Ghana and the US. Interning with Titagya Schools is a great way for students to gain experience working for a fast-growing, international social enterprise that is building a network of schools in rural Ghana. Interns are exposed to various aspects of our operations and work with a dedicated and fun team. By interning at Titagya, you can spend a summer or more having a valuable impact on young children’s lives and gaining first-hand development experience. Examples of previous intern projects include making a video about our mission, serving as a teaching assistant, writing grants for new classrooms, and designing aspects of our curriculum.
Interns are students or recent graduates from top universities who are passionate about education, accomplished, creative, sensitive to other cultures, and good at working in a team setting. They often have previous experience in the functional area in education or fundraising. If this sounds like you, we can’t wait to hear from you. For more information or to apply, please contact Andrew Garza at email@example.com. We begin accepting resumes for summer internships in October, and decisions are typically made by January. At this time, we aren’t able to offer stipends for interns, so we require that they independently identify university or other outside funding sources.
