We send our thoughts to our friends and community that were affected by the earthquake in Nepal this past weekend. During this time of rebuilding and healing, the World Endeavors Intern and Volunteer in Nepal programs will be suspended until further notice.
If you are looking for ways to help the relief efforts in Nepal, we encourage you to do so by donating or channeling your efforts to an organization like the Red Cross or the relief organization of your choice.
Why Intern in Nepal?
Adventurous participants looking for a truly unique experience will find that Nepal is the perfect location for their internship abroad. World Endeavors’ site in the city of Pokhara, Nepal’s second largest city, makes a great base for interns who wish to experience both the culture of Nepal and its outdoor attractions, such as trekking, climbing, and rafting. Interns gain unique insights into this isolated country through host family accommodations and internship placements with locally-run organizations.
Interns can expect to work side by side with local colleagues, receive direction from a manager or staff member, and behave just as one would in a real job. On weekends or after work hours, interns engage in a host of activities depending on each participant’s tastes. Interns share meals with new friends or host family members, take in cultural events, explore the city, or even take day or weekend trips outside of the area. World Endeavors provides a list of possible activities in the area and the World Endeavors local coordinator can also function as an ever present guide and ambassador to the area.
Program Highlights and Links
World Endeavors Interns in Nepal live and work in Pokhara.

The family I stayed with was great – they couldn’t have been a nicer family. I think it is very important to be able to live right along with the locals to really get to experience their normal, everyday lives.
