Community Psychology Volunteering and Internship

We seek open-minded, passionate, hardworking individuals to join the Art in Tanzania Psychology internship. In the program, we encourage students to apply the knowledge and skills they have built at university in various community-orientated topics at the grassroots level in Africa.

 The Development tasks include working closely with members of the community who need the help most, such as children in poverty, children and youth living with disabilities, orphaned children, unemployed youth, women in poverty, people with HIV, people recovering from trauma, people recovering from addiction, and the elderly. It also includes being part of other ongoing projects such as education, women’s assistance, human rights, and corporate social responsibility. Psychology can be a helpful asset in our approaches to these topics. Bring skills and tools to empower the local community around you and to help us create a more significant impact in our different programs.
