Welcome to the Project Children Summer Work & Travel Program.

Project Children Intern Program

COVID-19 Pandemic Update:

In light of the global corona virus pandemic and in the interest of everyone's safety, it is with a heavy heart that we have decided to cancel the Project Children Intern Program for summer 2020.

Please know this decision was not made lightly and given these extenuating circumstances, we feel we must continue to do our part in keeping everyone involved in the program safe.

At this point, we will focus our time and energy on the Project Children Intern Program in 2021.

We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their time, effort and support of the program over the years and we are incredibly proud of all the work that has been achieved to date.

We look forward to continuing the program in the future and for the brighter days ahead.

Be well and stay healthy.

The Project Children Summer Work & Travel Program provides a once in a lifetime opportunity for students from Northern Ireland and Ireland. Our seven week 'cultural exchange' program runs each summer, and gives students the chance to immerse themselves in US culture by living, working and volunteering in the US.
