In 2020, as Covid-19 pandemic disrupted economies and activities across the globe, CEED had to cancel our regular internship including travel to Uganda. However, we strongly believe that internships are an important and enriching part of students' university experience as they provide students with real-world experience, facilitate meaningful connections and build key skills that will support them in pursuing their careers. That is why we decided to adapt our program to the current context by offering a virtual internship program that would fulfill our mandate to provide students with a valuable international learning experience, by incorporating them into a multi-cultural virtual workplace. CEED Concordia interns, in partnership with CEED Uganda interns, will develop and facilitate practical workshops for high school students in Gulu, that improve basic skills in Microsoft such as Excel and Word and introduction to coding. The aim is also to contribute to leveraging new technologies in the benefit of the teenagers’ education and personal development.
