A leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty, CARE USA places special focus on working alongside poor women because, equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty. Women are at the heart of CARE's community-based efforts to improve basic education, prevent the spread of disease, increase access to clean water and sanitation, expand economic opportunity and protect natural resources. CARE also delivers emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters, and helps people rebuild their lives. CARE Internship
CARE USA welcomes and encourages students who are interested in making a difference in the world to consider pursuing an internship. The internship program seeks to provide closely monitored, project-driven professional and practical experience for undergraduate and graduate students interested in contributing to substantive CARE projects and initiatives. Important networking opportunities are also provided through participation in orientations and trainings that will include information on CARE’s history, vision, and where individuals from within the organization will share more in-depth information on certain programs. Interns are placed domestically either at CARE USA headquarters in Atlanta or in U.S. field offices. CARE Visiting Fellows Program
Each summer, CARE USA hosts a Visiting Fellows Program offering a small number of graduate students with support from outside sources the opportunity to work with projects and conduct research in various CARE Country Offices. The fellowship assignments developed by host offices may include working for program areas such as Signature Programs (Access Africa, Mothers Matter, Power Within), Core Programs (Agriculture, Education, Economic Development, Emergency Response, Health, HIV/AIDS, and Water and Sanitation), Advocacy and External Relations, Program Support (HR, IT, Procurement) and other program areas critical to CARE. Fellowships also address organizational needs such as leading organizational development processes or global initiatives such as partnership or change management strategies. We welcome and encourage highly accomplished graduate students who are supported by an academic institution, foundation, corporation, or other agency to apply for our CARE Visiting Fellowships. Visiting Fellowship assignments generally range in duration from a period of three months to nine months.
