For the summer of 2019 we hope to have you join us in the Dominican Republic as a Live Different INTERN!
Do you find our 10 day builds not long enough? Are you someone who exemplifies strong leadership skills and has a passion for helping others? Have you been on one of our Live Different Builds in the past and wish you could’ve done more? If so, you should really consider applying to be one of our summer interns!
Becoming an intern for the summer will give you the opportunity to travel, grow and learn new things, as well as build relationships with people who you will quickly call friends. But, it's even more than that - it's the chance to experience life from another perspective and return home changed.
Over the course of your internship not only will you work alongside staff, contractors, translators, and families, but also volunteers from all across Canada. We’re looking for people who will have a positive impact on our volunteers and create a welcoming and fun atmosphere.
All interns will be responsible to work alongside the Live Different Staff to help facilitate a positive and fun trip experience for our volunteers. Some responsibilities will be assisting with:
General hosting and facilitation
When applying, you will undergo an approval process and the most eligible applicants will secure a position. We are looking for interns who are able to exemplify good leadership, maturity, compassion, energy, initiative and who are engaged in their school/community. Please apply online and one of our staff members will contact you with how to proceed. If you have any questions prior to applying please contact our Builds Administrator.

“As one person, I may not be able to change the world, but I can be apart of changing the whole world for one person. Interning with Live Different in the Dominican Republic was such a life changing experience, because not only did I get to be a light in so many people's lives as a leader, I got to see a light in each and every one of the volunteers spark up as they were also changed. We all went there to change the lives of a few families, who would’ve known that those families would’ve changed our lives just as much?” - Paige, Dominican Republic Summer Intern
