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.



Service-Learning Global Internship Programme (SLGIP) aims to nurture participants into globally-minded citizens by providing various internship opportunities in Non-governmental organizations (NGO) and social enterprises worldwide. The immersive experiences of working side-by-side with local community members target to widen students’ perspectives on societal and global issues by enhancing their reflection and awareness through hands-on and active participation.

What Can You Learn?

After the programme, you will:
  • have broader knowledge, deeper concern, and greater awareness on societal and global issues;
  • have deeper knowledge about the services of Non-governmental organizations (NGO)/social enterprises worldwide and have deeper understanding about the needs of vulnerable groups;
  • be able to have reflection on individual and social issues;
  • uphold a positive and passionate serving attitude to contribute to the local and global societies.

The 7-week internship in Taiwan broadens my horizons of the social services in New Taipei City. I had opportunities to work as the staff of New Taipei Toy Bank to serve the elderly and children in remote areas through the medium of second-hand toys, organize activities for the residents there, and hold a course regarding parenting education towards the children and their parents.

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) [B.A.M.S. - Build A Music School]
