College of the Rockies Interns Prepare for Overseas Work ExperienceBack To News June 12th, 2012
Since 2001, College of the Rockies has provided over 100 young Canadians with overseas work experience in countries such as Ecuador, Peru, Tanzania, Kenya and China.
COTR international internships are six and a half months in length and include a one-week orientation in Cranbrook, a six-month overseas work experience and a one-week debriefing session in Cranbrook.
This year's interns will be working in Ecuador, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, and Kenya with various COTR partner organizations that include universities, private businesses, and non-governmental organizations. Interns will work in fields such as microenterprise development, tourism, community development, nursing, health education and business.
International Project Coordinator Tracey Brenton said, â?These internships are funded by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) to provide post-secondary graduates the opportunity to gain international work experience that provides them with the tools and experience they need to launch successful careers in Canada or abroad."
In May, 2012, 14 COTR/CIDA interns from across Canada participated in a one-week orientation session in Cranbrook before departing for their overseas work experiences.
