We like to provide our interns with real-world projects that Resilient Communities and/or local partner associations need assistance developing - whether they are in the pipeline, need more research, ready for a proposal draft, or need funding! Our interns have directly contributed to Resilient Communities' mission of sustainable development in Morocco.
In addition to assisting us with project development, we assist our interns with designing and developing their own projects, gaining valuable skills along the way. At the same time, teaching them about development issues their project will be tackling in the Moroccan context, giving them a perspective on implementation methods and how they compare on an international level within their own home-countries.
Fall 2022 Intern, Class of 2024
While Sam is living in Morocco, he will manage the RC website and all social media accounts. Sam will be creating new content for existing social media accounts to try and promote RC in an interesting and positive way. Along with this Sam will also be creating new social media accounts for RC on both Facebook and TikTok. He will also create new content on both of these platforms as well.
