Some of our interns share:
Interning at CIP was one of the best decisions I made as an undergraduate. My experience with CIP introduced me to the world of international exchange, which not only broadened my international knowledge, but also deepened my connection to local community leaders while I gained first-hand experience with the day-to-day operations of a non-profit organization. Along with meeting dozens of individuals from all over the world and learning about their cultures, I also enjoyed the opportunity to interact with members of the Columbus community who CIP works with every day, from all kinds of different backgrounds. There is no doubt that interning at CIP inspired in me a passion for international exchange and helped me fulfill my dream of working abroad. Add to that the strong connection I feel with the international community in my home city and the many friends I now have all around the world, and my experience at CIP is something I wouldn’t trade for anything.
Marcus Andrews, Former Intern and Communications Coordinator
From September 2016 to July 2018 Marcus served as an English Teaching Assistant in a public primary school in Madrid (Spain). After returning from Spain, Marcus now serves as an AmeriCorps VISTA member at US Together, Inc. in Columbus, OH.
My internship with CIP during the spring of 2013 was one of the most educational and formative experiences of my life. I contributed to a variety of projects that perfectly complemented my international studies and Russian language coursework at The Ohio State University. My primary work consisted of developing two short-term training programs on accountable governance and library science for delegations visiting from Russia and Kyrgyzstan. Outside of the office, my family hosted two delegates from each group, which allowed me to practice my Russian language skills. Through amazing opportunities like serving as an informal interpreter for meetings with Columbus business leaders and learning to cook a traditional Central Asian dinner for our dear guests, I strengthened my desire to pursue a career in diplomacy and made friendships that will last a lifetime.
