NGOAbroad has the following international opportunities in social work:

  • GREECE: Syrian Refugees - Your help needed with trauma counseling in refugee camp in Greece. Helpful if you have or can acquire perspective on their world view as preparation.
  • SRI LANKA: Post Conflict Trauma - In 2009, Tamil civilians were told that they would be safe from the civil war in the "No Fire Zones." Instead, they were shelled and shot. 70,000 Tamils died in these atrocities; 10x the number killed in atrocities in Bosnia. Do you have experience in trauma? Or grief & loss? Or gender based violence? Or working with adults, children and families? Come help in this counseling program to help heal the wounds in the North.
  • KENYA: Sexual Abuse - While physical abuse/ domestic violence is beginning to be addressed throughout the world, sexual abuse is still taboo and unaddressed. This program is an exception for Africa. Experienced in trauma, sexual abuse, gender based violence, EMDR and/or PTSD? We need you here! Therapists with backgrounds in music, art or dance therapies especially helpful as Freudian based therapies and most talk therapy is very new and foreign in Kenya.
  • NEPAL: Trafficking - Sex traffickers prey on young women in rural Nepal that want out of poverty. Traffickers promise them a job; instead girls are tricked into prostitution and sexual exploitation in India. Come help in the remote rural villages: teach English and literacy to create another life for these girls. No experience necessary. Or if you have experience in counseling, help the women who have escaped prostitution to start life anew.
  • LEBANON: Syrian Refugees - There are ~1 million Syrian refugees in Lebanon; 1 out of 5 people.

  • UGANDA: Community Organizing & Women - This Ugandan social work director who emphasizes empowering women, is an excellent community organizer, and does a phenomenal job of teaching villages how to assess their needs, their strengths and achieve their goals. They have just bought land to build shelter for battered women so also need help with grant writing. This is an great place to get experience in international development.
  • INDIA: Geriatric Social Work - Do you have working with seniors or in home health care or any part of Gerontology? Help the equivalent of a local community college develop curriculum in Geriatric Social Work: half practice; half theoretical.

  • GHANA: Psychiatric Unit - Most psych units in Africa are about 50 years behind what you would find in the West. Come help with individual and group therapy and re-integration into the community.

  • THAILAND: Dance, Music, Art & Drama Therapy Work with innovative organization that helps kids with developmental disabilities through dance, music, art or drama therapy.
  • CAMEROON: Alternatives to Violence - When a social worker from Canada asked an audience of 50 men, how many of them beat their wives. 48 hands went up!

The City of Columbia’s Career Awareness Related Experience (C.A.R.E.) program is seeking unpaid interns/volunteers. C.A.R.E. is an excellent place for interns, practicum students, and volunteers to gain valuable experience. In addition, each summer, we hire approximately 10 summer job coaches, and being an unpaid intern often times leads to becoming a paid summer job coach (if that is something that interests you). Each semester, the C.A.R.E. program benefits greatly from “employing” many unpaid interns/volunteers, and in return offers them many great learning experiences, such as working with a government agency, social services programming, and diverse populations. C.A.R.E. internships offer a balance of working hands-on with at-risk youth and administrative work.

The C.A.R.E. program works with at-risk 14- to 20-year-olds who live in the City of Columbia, MO and/or attend a Columbia, MO school. High-risk teenagers face many barriers to joining the labor force. C.A.R.E.’s goal is for “Columbia’s youth to be ready to enter the workforce and become productive, self-sufficient citizens.” The C.A.R.E. unpaid intern/volunteer application process is simple. An applicant just needs to:

  • email a resume to ron.schmidt@CoMo.gov
  • interview with Ron Schmidt (his office is on the second floor at the Armory Sports Center, which is located at the corner of 7th St. and Ash St.; free parking is available on Park St., which is behind/north of the Armory)
  • get approval from his/her department for college credit (if applicable)
  • complete an Unpaid Intern/Volunteer Information form (Ron will provide)
