Tunisia
Internship


Engage

This summer, you have the opportunity to experience cultural immersion and see the country of Tunisia from top to bottom! As you immerse yourself in this Mediterranean nation, you will come to love the people, culture, and beauty of this often-forgotten North-African nation.

Details

In Tunisia, you will spend 2 months exploring many different cities and regions. After a week of orientation in the country’s capital city, you will travel to places such as the Sahara desert, the Mediterranean coast, a city filled with Roman ruins, and a literal desert oasis. While traveling, you will immerse yourself in the culture by learning the language and meeting with locals. There will be several opportunities to practice your new cultural knowledge by teaching English to students of all ages, both in the classroom and one-on-one. As you experience the history and beauty of this country, you will come to love the people and their stories.

If you are interested in real cultural immersion, need an 8-week internship, or are interested in long-term service overseas, we recommend you learn more about this amazing opportunity.
