Internship with Nav Chetna

The Internship at Nav Chetna is an experience which will help the person in many ways in his/her professional career. The internship program is designed in a holistic way to provide good opportunity to intern to go through the complete know how of social development sector and the area chosen by the intern.

Interns play an important role when working at NGOs, which are often not as fully staffed as the private sector. This means there are countless opportunities for an intern to grow and make real contributions to their workplace, while also preparing for their own career. Though NGOs are often open to hiring people from a variety of educational backgrounds, a vital part to landing a job at an NGO is having related work experience. An NGO internship will prove your dedication and strength of character and will not go unnoticed by future employers. Experience has shown us that the efficiency of our projects is a lot higher when its interns feel at comfort. Therefore, we put extra effort in creating a positive and relaxed working climate that feels welcoming for all.

Former Interns

With Nav Chetna, I gained experience in almost every aspect of my life and it helped me to orientate myself for the future
Nav Chetna in a nutshell: dynamic and personal. Dynamic because you’re eager to learn and always open to new ideas, and personal because I never felt like a number.
Nav Chetna made me realize that I want to apply for a job in this sector. Especially my time in the Amazon made me very enthusiast ic for anthropological work
