As part of our focus on providing vocational training and real-life applications of classroom insights, we are actively seeking out internship opportunities for our students. Since ours is a one-year program, this is not the standard 'spend the summer' between years 1 and 2, and we try to be creative in what cooperations we pursue. As it happens, we've been in touch with the UN Development Program's International Poverty Center in Brasilia. Their Research Programme on Cash Transfers and Social Protection as well as their Communications and Outreach Programme are looking for interns. We've arranged for them to cooperate with us in making these internship opportunities available to one or two ITFD students per year.
