PCI Internships

Thank you very much for your interest in PCI’s life-saving work for children and families around the world. PCI’s Internship Program strives to provide educational opportunities to passionate students who are interested in gaining hands on experience in their particular field of study. Our goal is for each intern to gain more from the opportunity than PCI does, because we have a core belief in capacity building—not only building capacity within the local communities where PCI’s programs are implemented worldwide, but in building capacity in students who are the future leaders of the global health and development sector.

When a student dedicates their skills and energy to PCI, they help make these strategic priorities and core beliefs a reality. We sincerely hope that every internship experience at PCI is valuable and worthwhile to each person’s long-term educational and professional development goals.
