What is the social internship?
The MaS is a form of volunteer work . You do something good for society without getting paid for it.
You are doing your MaS at a social organization . A social organization is a non-profit organization. The aim of such an organization is not to make a profit but to contribute something to society. A social organization is often an association or foundation that is committed specifically to a group of people in society.
Examples of social organizations:
- A sports club or other association , for example a football club or an orange club.
- A care institution, such as a retirement home or a home for people with disabilities.
- A foundation , such as a museum, play library, animal shelter or drop-in center.
By the way, a MaS is something different from a professional internship. You complete a professional internship to gain professional experience. The purpose of a MaS is to discover how fun and valuable volunteer work is, and to give you insight into society.
