NGO Internship in Seoul

While the work culture obviously differs from one NGO to another, most usually offer a family-like feel to the volunteers. The work environment is less formal than in a typical for-profit company. People are passionate about the causes that their NGO stands for and believe in working together to accomplish the common goals. During your NGO internship in Korea, you can expect to become a part of such an energetic work environment and driven group of people. Throughout the time of your NGO internship Korea, you’ll encounter ample incidents and meet plenty people that will leave you inspired.

If you choose a bigger size NGO for your Korea internship, then your work designation and responsibilities will be more or less fixed.

In large-sized NGOs, the administration tends to be highly compartmentalized. People have their job roles cut out for them. But in case you land a Korea internship at a relatively small size NGO, then chances are that you’ll have to assume more than one or two work responsibilities. Small size NGOs have limited staffing. This means that in addition to your designated role, you may be expected to help out your colleagues in their tasks when you have free time. While this may seem overwhelming, it’s actually a great opportunity to hone yourself as a generalist, someone who can multi-task. For example, one day you might be helping out a colleague on some field work, another day you could be helping organizing a fund-raising event, and some other day you may be writing a press release for your NGO.


Past AIP NGO interns have been involved and worked on the following projects:


  • Coordinating with Administration, HR, and Finance departments to support the organization on training events and meetings.
  • Maintaining networking with non-profit external partners and other organizations.
  • Preparing situation analysis and submitting reports of meetings/field visits.
  • Maintaining own records systematically and establishing systems to deliver the requirements of the role as needed.
  • Providing effective support to program operations and monitoring humanitarian situations.


Note that all AIP interns are given a personal supervisor who will train, monitor and guide you throughout your international internship experience.


Internship tasks will vary from company to company, as well as intern to intern. These are only examples of tasks that were carried out from previous interns.
