Program Overview

Program Description:
Gain experience, make contacts, make a difference! Chose from NGOs working on a range of issues, diverse museums, and some theatres.

Students spend a minimum of 25 real hours per week working for a local NGO, Museum, or Theater. Students may be asked to research, write, translate, or network depending on the student's abilities and/or the needs of the institution. In addition, students take Russian language classes. Courses are offered at six different levels, from beginning to advanced.

Many NGOs, both global and local, are working to study and improve the lives of a diverse population. Museums house and maintain some of the world's finest collections and theaters boast world-renowned troupes despite the region's history of revolution, censorship, war, and economic volatility. Many museums, NGOs, and theaters will open their doors to foreign interns, allowing students challenging opportunities to practice their Russian and gain a local perspective on the issues at hand, all while researching, writing, translating, fundraising, and/or networking for the institution.
