The East Africa Internship Program is made possible by the Canadian Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Scholarships as they aim to activate a community of young global leaders across Canada and the Commonwealth to create lasting impacts both at home and abroad. Through cross-cultural exchanges encompassing international education and professional experiences, students will learn about cultures and create projects with actions that impact the world as they join a global community of #QEScholars to share knowledge, exchange ideas, and collaborate on meaningful initiatives.

The East Africa Internship Program currently places interns in Nairobi, Kenya, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Abbotsford, Canada.
