There is an internship program currently taking shape between Drake and the Iowa Sister States. Take note: this internship is not yet completely established.

This internship would not be open to applicants everywhere; instead the internship would be arranged by Drake in coordination with the Iowa Sister States office. Interns would work with delegations coming in from Mexico or other groups from the Yucatan province. Some skills pertinent to the internship would include Spanish competency. This is not an internship in which students are encouraged to apply individually.

There will be occasional volunteer opportunities available, but these would also be coordinated through Drake.

Look for more information from the Service-Learning Staff or Career Opportunities staff at Drake about this great opportunity.

****Note: Iowa Sister States also has partnerships with cities in other regions.  Please visit their website for more information.
