Appropedia Travel Interns visit organizations and/or communities in a particular region to document their work, as wiki pages on Appropedia.

Many communities and organizations around the world are doing amazing work, and others could learn from what they are doing. However, part of being a community, activist or non-profit organization is tackling enormous tasks with limited resources - meaning they are too busy doing great work to have time to document that work. Appropedia's Travel Internships help to fill this gap.

The community or organization's duties:

  • Provide projects or engagements for our intern to document
  • Provide time to answer some of the intern's questions about what makes your project so impactful
  • Make sure the intern has a safe place to stay and eat (covering food and lodging is optional, but greatly appreciated)

The intern's duties:

  • Document the best projects and engagements of the organization or community
  • Help share the work with others
  • Be a professional and valuable presence

If your community or organization has a project for us to document, and a place for our intern to stay for the days it will take to document those projects, please contact the Appropedia Foundation at
