Scope of the Internship Programme

Internships are open to diploma, degree, post-graduate and doctoral students who wish to acquire knowledge and experience of a real work environment to the mutual benefit of both the organisation and the Intern. Interns are fully involved in the work programme of the unit relevant to their studies under the supervision of a responsible staff member.

Interns are expected to contribute their skills, knowledge and competencies while acquiring supplemental training in their areas of specialisation but are not full-time employees. They are not substitutes for full-time staff.

Mount Kenya Volunteers does not offer any payment for internship.

Internships are normally offered for a period of three but can be extended to a maximum of six months. An intern will work an average of 40 hours per week.

Placement Period

Mount Kenya Volunteers will accept internship placements quarterly: January, April, July and October for those applying from Africa; and July and October for applicants from outside of Africa.

Available positions will be posted on Mount Kenya Volunteer’s website during the month of October every year.
