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 7-week internship in Taiwan has increased my understanding of social services a lot. I had opportunities to serve different groups of people, including the elderly, women and vagrants. Serving the vagrants was the most profoundly memorable experience to me.
- Tsang Yee Man (Geography / Year 2) [New Taipei City Volunteer Association] 

 

While serving as music teachers at Build A Music School (B.A.M.S), we were so amazed by our students’ hard work and perseverance. Waking up real early in the morning and starting the class at 6:30 am, none of our students was lazy – they were highly focused in class and willing to learn. No matter how many times they failed to achieve the goal of playing the rhythm correctly, they kept trying. They reminded us of a famous quote: “You never know how close you are... Never give up on your dreams!”
- Li Jess (Music / Year 2) [B.A.M.S. - Build A Music School]
