The Converge Course prepares you to be effective during your internship. After the Pre-Departure Phase of the Converge Course, there are four remaining phases, which include – Enculturation, Assessment, Project, and Debriefing. You will accomplish various activities and assignments designed to help you engage on a deep level with the host community.
When you arrive at the internship location, your Host will conduct the Enculturation Phase to introduce you to the organization and the community.
During the Assessment Phase, you will also observe, listen, and ask open questions before you propose a unique contribution, to be completed during the Project Phase. Your big question, “What can I do here, with the time and resources that I have, to make a real difference?”
You may design a project to help start a business or plant a church, establish an HIV/AIDS counseling clinic or health awareness campaign, install water pumps or storage facilities, establish therapy routines for disabled children in an orphanage, or redesign a medical clinic or pharmacy. You may envision the development of a healthy nutritional plan for a hospice, or the creation of a curriculum for a school. Your Project may take the form of a video, a web site, a PR campaign, or another community resource that relates to your studies or career.
Finally, you will reflect on your Internship experience during the Debriefing Phase and post a summary of your Project.
