International internship program in Cusco-Perú

In the way of improving the quality of help for our beneficiaries and giving international students the opportunity to develop their professional field CooperarPerú opens an international internship program in different professional areas in the city of Cusco-Peru. Our goal is to provide an internship to meet a different experience from volunteering.

All internships are supervised by Peruvian professionals in the field of action.

The objective of this program is to give apprentice the opportunity to learn and teach their knowledge in the area of interest. Our team will organize activities to train them in the different areas in which they have to carry out their practices, either in the CooperarPerú organization or in the organizations which we work with.
