We offer ten week internships in January/February/March and June/July/August. Interns are provided with food and lodging in Marrakech as well as basic expenses. Prospective interns should have completed at least one full year of University level education and demonstrated an ability to write persuasively. Photography/ video skills would be a big advantage. Responsibilities include contributing to our websites, App, blogs and social media.
Our iphone App the Marrakech Riad Travel Guide was originally written in English. One of our summer 2014 interns has done a great job of re-writing the App in French. We are actively seeking future interns who can achieve a similarly excellent result in other languages, priorities are German, Dutch and Danish/Norwegian, but we are open to any proposal. For the avoidance of doubt, this is not a translation job. Our goal is to re-imagine our guide to Marrakech, within the framework of the App in a way that makes it genuinely relevant and helpful from the cultural perspective of native speakers of each language.

We co-founded and continue to support the Henna Cafe Cultural Association, a charity project in Marrakech The Cafe welcomes approaches from potential volunteers. This might include:
- Marrakech residents who are able to offer their time regularly to run classes in the Cafe Education Centre. There is always strong demand for European Languages but we are open to any suggestions. Previous classes have included photography, music, art, drama, a kids club and a job seekers club.
- Mature, independent, giving folk who are able to commit for the medium term, ideally six months or more to volunteer full time within the project both working in the cafe and actively teaching and getting involved in the education side. For the avoidance of doubt this would be unpaid so volunteers need to have the financial resources to support themselves in Marrakech.
Please apply through the Henna Cafe website.
