Each year, the Foundation of Stars can count on interns from all over the world to help the permanent team. Since 2014, we regularly offer internship opportunities lasting several months that allow interns to dive into the heart of the Foundation's events and to actively participate in fundraising activities.

This type of contract helps interns to strengthen their professional skills and facilitates their integration into the workplace. On the Foundation's side, hosting interns helps strengthen the team with multiple skills, depending on the profiles recruited.
