Crossroads Foundation recruits students from universities and colleges to participate in its annual internship programme. Students are given the opportunity to be assistant managers in most of our many departments and to help in the running of them. They work with people from around the world while gaining vital, real-world English-environment, work experience.
Roles available include communications, design, translation, accounting, administration, research, goods preparation for distribution, shipping, computing, catering, hospitality, simulation experiential programmes, our fair trade marketplace and café. Students are awarded a certificate and a reference letter from Crossroads on completion of the internship programme.
Date: Students commit to a six-week, full-time service period. Our work week is Tuesday through Saturday, from 10:00am to 5:00pm.
First intake: June 5th – July 14th 2018 (Deadline for applications is May 12th)
Second intake: July 10th – August 18th 2018 (Deadline for applications is June 16th)
Time: Crossroads working hours for interns are 10am to 5pm Tuesday to Saturday. They are closed on public holidays unless advised otherwise.
Place: Internships take place at the Crossroads Village, 2 Castle Peak Road, Tuen Mun.
How: Interested students should complete an internship application form. They will then undertake a brief interview and, in the following weeks, be notified as to whether they have been accepted and in which department they have been placed. After completing 6 full time weeks of internship, each student will receive a certificate and a letter of reference from Crossroads. These are awarded at an internship celebration at the end of the period or upon finishing the programme.
Note: Students who are not in Hong Kong at the time of the interviews may complete their interviews online. Email us for more details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
About : Crossroads Foundation is a Hong Kong based, non-profit organisation serving global need. They believe that, in a broken world that sees too much suffering, we should do all we can to link those who are in need with those who can provide help. So Crossroads provides an intersection, literally a crossroads, to bring both together. They offer four global crossroads services:
Global Distribution: This distributes Hong Kong’s quality excess goods as needed, internationally and locally. It provides a crossroads between need and supply.
Global X-perience: This offers simulated x-periences of global need. It provides a crossroads between the lifestyles of the rich and poor.
Global Handicrafts: This sells fair trade goods from people in poverty. It is a crossroads between those needing a fair income and those with buying power.
Global Hand: This provides a ‘matching’ website for public-private partnerships. It is a crossroads between for-profit and non-profit organisations who wish to address global need.
