Rakshak Foundation’s Internship program is a professional development program intended to advance Rakshak Foundation’s goals with a pipeline of top university talent and, in turn, provide students with practical learning experience in the area of public policy issues and citizen participation in governance.
Interns are recruited and selected based upon their educational standing, curriculum and potential. The program also allows Rakshak Foundation to inculcate the sense of responsibility and true meaning of a good citizen in the youth of the country by having them work towards real social projects and issues.
The focus of the program is for students to learn about the vast opportunities available for them to make a positive impact with limited time and resources. The program encourages learning from interaction with the fellow interns from different disciplines and backgrounds and eminent institutes across the country.
