A Projects Abroad social work intern in Mongolia spends time with a child

Social Work interns working in Mongolia will be based in the metropolitan city of Ulaanbaatar, home to over a million people. The country battles with high unemployment rates which leaves children abandoned and many families living in poverty. As a Social Work intern, you will work alongside local staff at care facilities and share your knowledge with your colleagues and the local community.

Your daily activities will be guided by a trained social worker. They will encourage you to first observe and gain a better understanding of what will be expected of you. Thereafter, you will be given an opportunity to get more hands-on experience to fulfil your university requirements.

Your role on a Social Work Internship in Mongolia

Assist local staff by sharing the many skills and techniques you have learned through your studies. You can work on tasks such as:

  • Applying your theoretical knowledge to real-life cases
  • Sharing your knowledge with the trained professional staff to improve current practices
  • Helping run awareness projects
  • Assisting your supervisor with daily activities
  • Creating workshops and presentations
  • Helping alleviate the pressure on local staff

As a social work intern you will work from Monday to Friday, completing around six hours a day. Daily tasks will be assigned to you by your supervisor.

The Social Work Internship in Mongolia is available year round, with a minimum length requirement of four weeks. This is to ensure you fully engage with the community and manage to get as much hands-on experience as possible while working with your supervisor.

What skills or qualifications do I need?

Social work interns need to have completed two years of studies towards a degree in social work, or related subjects. Volunteers who are interested in this project, but aren’t studying social work or related subjects, should take a look at our standard Care project in Mongolia.

This placement is fully researched, safety audited and risk assessed in accordance with the British Standard BS8848 for the Adventure Travel Sector.
