Connect-123 also organizes Barcelona business internships, which offer special insight into Spain’s economic powerhouse, Catalonia. For those interested in non-profit or humanitarian internships, Connect-123’s Spain internship programs offer opportunities in microfinance, human rights, education, public policy, social work and youth development.
Similarly, Connect-123’s Spain volunteer programs are diverse and extensive. Animal lovers and veterinary school applicants alike will appreciate the opportunity to volunteer at a local vet office or work with Catalan animal welfare organizations. Social work and community service volunteers have the opportunity for both research and advocacy positions with real world experiences. Other volunteer opportunities in Barcelona include working with and mentoring local entrepreneurs with the economic development volunteer programs, volunteering with youth development, or participating in eco-friendly policy and environmental education projects through environmental volunteer programs.
Additional opportunities for international internships and volunteer programs are always available, and Connect-123 staff is pleased to work with participants to design exceptional experiences tailored to a participant’s individual interests and goals.
Connect-123 develops and administers career-related, challenging international internship, volunteer and study abroad programs for university students and graduates in a wide range of fields, including human rights, journalism, education, business consulting, entrepreneurship, health care and sustainable development.
