Greenheart Travel, a Chicago-based non-profit that provides cultural immersion programs around the world and sends hundreds of volunteers and teachers abroad every year, has a really great internship program available via Xplore Asia. Xplore Asia is a partner cultural exchange organization based in Hua Hin, Thailand.

Interns will work directly for Xplore Asia in various departments at their office in Hua Hin.
