THE GREEN LION
Our Journalism internship is practice-based and you, as an intern, will supply articles written in English for a local Thai newspaper every other week. You will be required to write articles and reports about local events, interesting developments going on in the area and so on. This unique experience will enable you to utilize your theoretical knowledge and training, previously gained by long hours in a classroom, in practice within the field. This opportunity is open for those interested in journalism and writing who wish to develop their skills while at the same time contribute to society and spend some time overseas. This internship collaborates directly with local Thai newspapers for which the articles and reports need to be written based on careful research and reports in the field. A minimum of 25 hours should be allocated for the internship per week. Our internship provides study-affiliated and international work experience, practical skills training, knowledge accumulation and teamwork skills while at the same time making a worthwhile contribution to the community and organization. Your work will be coordinated by an English-speaking local with an established background in journalism. The coordinator will guide, supervise and assess you. Moreover, the coordinator will help out with the language barriers that may exist among local partners.
About the Accommodation Your new home will be one of our 3 ‘Eco Houses’ near Singburi, central Thailand: Lemon House, Twin House and Brown House. They are all located riverside (River Noi – Little River) in the village of Tha Kham and depending on which house you are staying at, is about 8-15km from Singburi (10-15 minutes by car). The 3 houses sleep from 30 to 72 people. All houses have a communal area where you can eat, relax, meet fellow participants or use the free Wifi. Although not directly on site, there are laundry facilities offered by locals which many of our participants take advantage of (this will probably cost you 5? per item, otherwise you can easily wash your clothes by hand.) For participants who desire more comfort and privacy, families, couples and more elderly participants, we recommend upgrading to a comfort room. These rooms are more luxurious, uniquely designed and located apart from the two standard participant residences and so are noticeably quieter. Food Arrangements All the meals served inside the accommodation are vegetarian friendly and will be typically Thai, including plenty of rice dishes and fruits. Water, coffee and tea are available all day long.
You will be located in the outskirts of Singburi, an interesting town 142 km north of Bangkok. Singburi was founded under the reign of King Rama V through the consolidation of 3 small towns located on the bank of The Chao Phraya River. The three small towns, Sing Buri, In Buri and Phrom Buri, were then established as a single town on the west of the Chao Phraya River in 1895. Your new home is set close to the village of Tha Kham, an extremely rural area that will give you the chance to experience the Thailand that very few get to see.
