Gain real world skills while making an impact

University students want to make a difference. Team4Tech’s internship programs allow students the opportunity to support international nonprofits while gaining important professional experience and leadership skills.

Team4Tech’s internship program is focused on supporting nonprofit organizations working to improve education in under-resourced communities around the world. For university students interested in education, technology, and/or international development, who want to gain real-world experience and deliver solutions to educational nonprofits, this is a valuable opportunity.
