Introduction

Service-Learning Global Internship Programme (SLGIP) offers you an opportunity to participate in different non-profit/non-governmental organizations in different cities.

By joining SLGIP, you are encouraged to step out from your comfort zone and explore the unexpected and undiscovered possibilities throughout your stay during the internship period. We expect our participants could learn and grow from the amazing experiences.

SLGIP is not just a channel for you to search for an internship position, but also a rare chance to enable you to understand more about your inner self and the communities.

The internship program have given me an opportunity to get the working experience that is rare to have in Hong Kong. The recycling work of toy inspired me a lot to think about environmental protection.

This is really a once in a life time experience for me to learn brand-new things, build new relations, and experience life. During the internship, there were so much possibilities for me to explore and discover. I am glad that I can experience Myanmar and widen my sight in this summer!
- Tang Yiu Hung (Social Work / Year 2) [Grace Heaven Children Home]
