TSOS conducted the Spring 2022 Internship Cohort during the months of March through May. The internships provided a meaningful opportunity to receive technical and professional training while working side by side with experts in their respective areas of work.

At the end of the 8-week internship, each intern learned more about the inner workings of an NGO, gained invaluable insight into the topics of refugees and displacement, and acquired skills they can utilize in their future careers.
