Our Interns' Experiences

Barbara, 2018 -  I started my internship at ICA Japan in February 2018 and it was one of the most rewarding experiences regarding my studies. I was not only able to learn a lot about the projects and human development but also improved soft skills like managing the website, using Photoshop and  my Japanese skills. The most influencing and overwhelming experience was my trip to the cities Namie and Minamisouma in the Fukushima prefecture. It really was interesting to see how the people there work in cooperation with the NPO to revitalize the community again. The working atmosphere at ICA Japan is very friendly and I am glad for the opportunity of interning there. 

Amanda Liu, 2017 - Interning at ICA Japan has been one of the most rewarding experiences I've had so far in Japan. ICA Japan, with its small work force, has changed the lives of so many and continues to strive to ameliorate lives of people around the world. ICA Japan offers you the opportunity to not only learn about NGOs and NPOs, but also to put thoughts into action.

Ricardo, 2017 - My internship experience at ICA Japan has been not only interesting, but also very rewarding and allowed me to learn a lot about NPOs, community development and other aspect of ICA’s work. This internship also gave me many opportunities that I would have never gotten otherwise, like going to different events around Tokyo to meet new and interesting people, doing a research trip to the city of Asago in the west part of Japan or going to Fukushima to help with cleaning activities. I also acquired a lot of technical skills, notably in web and graphic design. I would certainly recommend this internship to anyone.
