Absolute Internship made a 2020 New Year’s resolution to give back to the international education community. Building on 10 years of providing career and travel opportunities to young people aboard, the organization is continuing its ongoing commitment to education through its Charity Initiative to raise funds for GFC.

For each student who enrolled in an international internship in January, Absolute Internship is donating €100 to GFC to help build a world where all children and youth are safe, strong, and valued. The organization’s goal? Prepare young people for the future and turn students into future leaders.

“We believe every child should be able to realize their full potential and grow up to build a better world. Around the world, millions of children never see the inside of a classroom – meaning they miss out on life-changing opportunities. In the last 20 years, Global Fund for Children has improved millions of children’s lives by supporting meaningful change where it stands to do the most good: in the heart of the community.” – Absolute Internship

Absolute Internship matches university students and graduates with work experience placements in 11 cities around the world. With over 60 university partnerships and more than 800 host companies across the globe, it aims to develop both the personal and professional skill sets of its interns, allowing them to follow their passions alongside other students from all around the globe.
