Come with us on one our trips to meet the people we serve (once a year to each country).
Share your skills abroad
Periodically, Self-Help will offer extended trips to those who have a specific skill and are interested in sharing that work with our staff members in Nicaragua or Ghana.
To learn more about travel opportunities, Contact Us or call (319) 352-4040.
BECOME AN INTERN Self-Help internships in the U.S. and abroad require a 12-week commitment. Students interning for Self-Help may receive academic credit with partnering colleges and universities.
Internships are unpaid. Travel and living expenses cost $2,000–$3,000 for the duration of the stay. We encourage students to seek funding through their school and individual fundraising.
