Seated on Britain’s east coast at the Firth of Fourth, Scotland’s capital hosts a castle, the Queen’s palace, Scottish Parliament, and an array of architecture dating across several millennia. More importantly, Edinburgh captures the spirit of the Scots in food and festival. In partnership with local trusts and social service programs, students serve vocationally with those in need in one of Europe’s most beautiful capitals.
Our Scottish internship partners with several development oriented organizations to serve the homeless, jobless, and those battling substance addictions. Participants interested in counseling, non-profit support services, and social services will find this internship invaluable as a chance to test their interests and develop their passion for those in need.
Participants will also explore the roots of service and social justice grounded in the historical Christianity of Scotland. In addition to studying key Scots involved in Christian reform and service, participants will enjoy an excursion to Iona, an ancient Christian monastic island off the Atlantic coast.
This year’s internship will not only overlap with Edinburgh’s world famous Fringe Festival and Royal Military Tattoo, but participants will have the opportunity to extend their United Kingdom experience by visiting London and the 2012 Olympic Games.
Students interested in college credit for this internship can apply for it through Impact edVentures and our university partners.
