To complement the program components included in the BC-Puentes experience, you can choose any or all of the program add-ons here to allow for additional immersion and support.
You can further enhance your cultural immersion and also gain professional experience by doing an internship. We will set up an engaging internship at a high-performing nonprofit or business in Buenos Aires, in which you will undertake meaningful work with close supervision. Throughout the internship, you will have regular check in meetings with your internship supervisor in order to review recent and upcoming work. Additionally, you, the Puentes staff, and your internship supervisor will have an initial meeting and a mid-internship site visit meeting to provide a space to review your project work plan and communicate learnings, challenges, successes, and goals. At the end of the internship, you and your internship supervisor will have a closing meeting to reflect on your internship experience.
