Develop Skills for a Career in Social Services
Use your knowledge, compassion, and extra set of hands to help communities in need. You love to travel and learn about other cultures, but now you want to do more. You see yourself helping others in your career, whether it’s at home or abroad, yet you know that getting that experience and making a real difference can be a challenge.
Intrax offers 1-6 month internships in Belize, Ghana, Peru, and Thailand that give you the chance to build quality work experience in the field. Intrax/ProWorld staff members work directly with local community members to develop internship projects based on their communities’ needs.

Local , On-the-Ground Staff
Our staff lives and works in the communities we partner with, ensuring that we stay close to community issues and maintain a close eye on the sustainability of our internships and efforts. Having on-site staff also means we’re familiar with the region and are on-hand to help you with any questions or issues that come up while you’re abroad.
Intrax Social Development Internships are delivered on site by ProWorld, which Intrax purchased in 2010.
ProWorld in Transition
In 2010, Intrax acquired ProWorld, an organization that has run social development internships for more than a decade. As the companies fully merge, ProWorld is evolving into the Social Development offering within Intrax Global Internships. We are excited to continue providing the same social development internships and group opportunities as we have in the past, but with greater Intrax support. When you arrive in Belize, Ghana, Peru or Thailand, you'll continue to work with the same exceptional ProWorld in-country staff who have built our program into the outstanding experience it is today.
“I really like how the approach is to make long-term difference, not just a few weeks out of the year setting up clinics, but trying to make the healthcare system work and produce better health outcomes without stepping on the toes of the government.”
