Ashinaga is a non-profit based in Japan that provides educational and emotional support for orphaned students worldwide. The Ashinaga Internship Program encompasses a variety of departments and functions. Interns have the ability to choose between a number of different fields within the organization, and we hope that by tapping the minds of intellectuals from all over the world we’ll be able to turn Ashinaga into an all-embracing, international NGO. To date we have had over 400 interns from over 90 global universities in several dozen countries.
The Ashinaga Internship Program offers a hybrid structure for interns based in Japan, and a remote structure for interns residing in other countries.
- 2024 Spring-Summer Internship: 13 May – 19 July 2024*Possibility of extension till 13 September 2024 depending on intern performance and team needs.
Interns work with a variety of different teams at our HQ in Tokyo. They are guided through their projects by a dedicated team supervisor, simultaneously gaining transferable skills and an insight into working at an international NGO.
Interns will work a part-time flexible schedule (~20h/week) decided upon with their supervisors.
In addition to general team-based projects, interns will participate in several program-wide online events to learn more about how Ashinaga works, and also have the opportunity to interact with some Ashinaga scholars.
- Lunch stipend of 1,000JPY/working day
- Work-related travel expenses (for interns currently living in the Japan only)
