Abroad Program

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.
