What can you do for LSI?
Volunteer jobs or internships at one of the La Strada offices?
All La Strada offices work with volunteers. However, these are local volunteers living in the La Strada countries. In case you are interested in volunteering and/or in an internship at any of the La Strada offices, you can directly address the relevant organisation.
Volunteer jobs or internships at the international office in Amsterdam
La Strada International also works with volunteers and occasionally accepts students who want to carry out their internship and specific research project at the LSI office. LSI cannot provide housing for volunteers and interns from abroad. If you are interested in volunteering for LSI, please send your letter of motivation and CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please keep in mind that due to limited capacity we cannot accept many volunteers, even if your experience, qualifications and motivation match our aims and philosophy.
