The 'Interns Abroad' program seeks to address the current skills gap by offering locals the opportunity to get international experience in their chosen field (e.g. Construction, Finance/ Accounting, Information Technology, etc).
The program will be free of charge for participants and will range from 2 weeks to one month in length. Once launched, it is hoped that annually this program will afford up to 20 Bahamians an opportunity to intern abroad.
How it will work
Eleuthera Chamber of Commerces (ECC) members will nominate potential candidates to the 'Interns Abroad' Committee of the ECC.
The Committee will review nominations quarterly and vet potential candidates.
Successful candidates selected for the program will be matched with an identified international program sponsor with the means to support the candidate.
The ECC, with the support of its partners, will cover the travel cost, accommodations and per diem for successful candidates.
