Q : WHAT ARE PARENTS SAYING ABOUT UNLEASHED INTERNSHIPS?

“Just sending a quick email to say thanks for an amazing summer for my daughter! Also wanted to say that I greatly admire all of your family and your dedication and selflessness in your work.  We were able to successfully plan and organize a surprise gathering for my daughter and her friends for their return home from their summer experience abroad.”

Q : IS IT SAFE FOR SINGLE COLLEGE STUDENTS AND YOUNG PROFESSIONALS TO LIVE AND WORK IN SOUTHEAST ASIA?

A : Each Unleashed Internship city is vetted by an Unleashed staff member prior to the intern living and working in Southeast Asia. Our staff vets each city for working conditions, adequate housing, public transportation options, healthcare standards, cultural opportunities, and emergency procedures. Unleashed Internships also require a minimum of 2 interns to live and work in each participating city.

Q : WHAT KIND OF LOCAL HOUSING AND TRANSPORTATION IS PROVIDED FOR INTERNS?

A : Interns live in housing approved by Unleashed and their business leader prior to the intern arriving in the city of the internship. Internship housing, at a minimum, is required to be in a safe community, have access to a private bathroom, air conditioning, and internet. While it is not always possible, we work hard to look for housing options near their business, so they can walk or commute to work easily. This also encourages the intern to become familiar with the community where their employees and families live. Interns are not allowed to drive motorcycles and are encouraged to use public transportation including taxis, buses, rickshaws, tuk-tuks, skytrains, and other forms of public transit that engages them with the local people and infrastructure of the cities and countries they live and work in.

Q : HOW CAN INTERNS STAY CONNECTED TO THEIR FAMILIES WHILE LIVING AND WORKING INTERNATIONALLY?

A : Interns will all have access to internet in the businesses where they work and at their housing accommodations.
