Why was the Campus Intern Initiative (CII) created?

FRO recognizes that while university students may have the desire to raise awareness about important causes, their academics, part-time work, and on-campus activities can make it difficult for students to intern intensively in a professional setting. The CII was created in March 2013 to give students the opportunity to work with an African NGO in a meaningful, but not time-consuming manner.

What is expected of me as a Campus Intern?

The expectations are simple: you must complete a minimum of two (2) advocacy/outreach initiatives and two (2) fundraising effort per semester.

Additionally, you are also expected to schedule a monthly skype meeting with the International Advocacy Coordinator. During this conversation, you should be prepared to update the IAC on your advocacy and fundraising efforts.

What can I expect in return for my work as a Campus Intern?

For every semester during which you successfully complete the minimum requirements for a Campus Intern as described above, you will enjoy the following benefits:

  • A “Certificate of Participation” you can add to your portfolio.
  • Your inclusion on our website as an outstanding Campus Intern.
  • The ability to use the IAC as a reference for the future job or university applications.
  • An invitation to intern onsite with FRO in Uganda.
