Founded in 2010, we offer short-term summer internships in Russia. You can do one of several types of volunteering, such as teaching English and translation, among others. Internships take place in regional cities, away from Moscow and St. Petersburg. Each one is a combination of the structured and the spontaneous. Whatever your level of Russian, the experience will take you out of the classroom, giving you resume-worthy work experience, all-day Russian practice, and a first-hand and unmediated look at what modern-day Russia is like.
A Crossroads Eurasia internship includes the following:
An internship placement,
Accommodations with meals,
A local Russian-language tutor,
Local 24-hour support, and
Help with prep (e.g. your visa).
In other words, we take care of the logistics, so you can focus on what’s most important.
Our internships are organized and administered locally. Each placement is adapted to your needs and support is always close by.
Share language, culture, life is an ongoing series of moderated dialogues between Russian-learners based in the US and the UK and Russian students in Russia.
We have not yet opened applications for the summer 2021 program. Sign up to our mailing list, so we can let you know when we do.
