Summer Student Internships @ Crossroads

27 Apr

Crossroads Foundation recruits students from universities and colleges to participate in its unique, annual internship programme. Students are given the opportunity to be assistant managers in each of our many departments and to help in the running of those departments. The students in these roles will be able to work with all types of people from around the world while gaining vital, real-world English-environment work experience.

Student-243x300Roles available include working in fields such as communications & vision, accounting, administration, processing goods for distribution, shipping, computing, catering and hospitality and fair trade commerce.

Interns will need to complete a full six week internship to receive a reference and certificate.

Date: Students commit to a six-week, full-time service period. Contact us for more details at or to sign up, click here.

Time: The work week is Tuesday through Saturday, from 10:00am to 5:00pm.

Location: Internships take place at the Crossroads site, opposite Gold Coast, near Tuen Mun in the New Territories.

About Crossroads: Crossroads’ goal is to connect people in a broken world. As our name suggests, we try to be a crossroads: bringing together those in need and those who can help. We do so in four ways.

GLOBAL DISTRIBUTION: Where need meets resource We are donated excellent quality goods by business and private donors. We distribute these to people in need, in Hong Kong and around the world.

GLOBAL HAND: Partnering for a better world Global Hand is a match-making service which links for-profit and non-profit organisations who want to partner to help meet global need.

GLOBAL X-PERIENCE: Stepping into another’s shoes We offer simulation x-periences in which participants step, briefly, ‘into the shoes’ of people facing global challenges: war, poverty, HIV vulnerability, blindness, environmental challenges, hunger, etc.

GLOBAL HANDICRAFTS: Fair trade for a fairer world Aid helps people today. An income helps them tomorrow. Global Handicrafts Marketplace sells goods from people in need within Hong Kong, and around the world, on a fair trade basis.

Volunteering at Crossroads is one way you can line up the skills you have, with your hopes to make a difference to a broken world. We need people with almost any skills to do jobs like packing goods, driving trucks, cooking meals, administration and computer work, gardening and landscaping, art and design, and much more.
