Interested in engaging in a motivating, high-paced, life-changing experience to help Moroccan communities?  Well, the High Atlas Foundation has just what you’re looking for!

The High Atlas Foundation (HAF) was formed by the vision and drive of former Peace Corps Volunteers. Since its birth in 2000, HAF has carried the tradition of service and flourished because of the support of passionate interns and volunteers to help further the organization’s mission. Students, young professionals, and individuals inspired by the High Atlas Foundation’s efforts to create sustainable development in Morocco have joined our team and shared their skills and expertise to develop projects, provide administrative assistance, and help share HAF’s story with the global community.

Internship Program
Internships are unpaid (without housing or a stipend) and are a minimum of 2 months (preferred 3 months) with various focuses. As an intern, you will be responsible for managing your own projects and responsibilities, so we look for candidates who have displayed independence in their previous work. You will gain insight into the High Atlas Foundation’s operations and activities in Morocco while gaining experience in various areas related to sustainable development and NGO development. We offer internship opportunities with our offices in Morocco and remotely.  

In order to be considered for an internship, please send your resume and a cover letter explaining 1) why you are interested in working with the High Atlas Foundation, 2) your area(s) of expertise, and 3) the time period/dates for which you are interested in interning.

    HAF is committed to providing enriching internship or volunteer experiences for students or recent graduates interested in pursuing a career in Development, NGO’s, International Affairs or related fields. Participants in HAF’s intern and volunteer program are invited to work part-time or full-time, and are encouraged to explore our projects in the field to gain insight into project implementation and to interact with the beneficiaries.

    - Assisting with the development of new project initiatives;

    - Supporting Project Managers with HAF projects and activities;

    - Gaining experience of grant proposal writing;

    - Researching project funding sources and donors;

    - Supporting online fundraising efforts;

    - Assisting with communications, social media and public outreach.

    Interns may also have the opportunity to visit projects in the field and gain an insight into the lives of the communities with whom HAF works.

    While we do not require our interns and volunteers to have certain skills or experiences, we look for team members who are hardworking and have a commitment to HAF’s vision. A knowledge of French, Arabic or Amazigh languages is of great advantage.To participant in this educational cross-cultural experience and gain fundamental professional experience, contact us with an overview of your interests and motivation and a copy of your CV: This email address is being protected from spambots.
