International Internship Program

Cambodia ACTs headquarters in Phnom Penh offers a limited number of international internship positions to students and recent graduates. The internship program gives applicants the opportunity to gain field experience in a developing country working to help protect and prevent vulnerable children from human trafficking and other forms of exploitation. The Program is a two-way training process, as Interns learn from working side by side with a team of experienced local staff and international management, whilst at the same time transferring their own skills and knowledge to their local counterparts. There are many opportunities to learn and grow into the organization should the intern want to stay after the internship is complete.

Cambodia ACTs are a gender equal organisation, offering job opportunities to male and female staff.
