Capstone Internship Program @ Pleiku City, Vietnam

July 1-14 and July 15-28, 2018
Grades 10-12

A two-week summer-credit service project in Pleiku City, Vietnam

The Capstone Internship Program brings together students from Canada, Vietnam, Cambodia and the U.S to provide summer activities and education to orphans as well as adults and children with Down syndrome.

Prior to their trip, students monitored by the lead teachers collaborate remotely to develop their action plan, beginning June 1. Online follow up work will be conducted in August.

Students who successfully complete this program receive 0.5 STEM or Humanities credit from Stanstead College.

Capstone offers a hands-on education in completing real-world internships. The mix of cultures and collaborative thinking cultivates curious, independent scholars who are prepared to make evidence-based decisions and real-time adaptions. The camp also serves as a springboard for college application essay writing.

Program Details


The program in Pleiku City will run Monday to Friday. Weekends will be left unstructured with occasional cultural activity in the area and free time.

"I had wonderful journey this summer. I had the opportunity to go to Vietnam for two weeks and have fun helping kids. It was a life-changing experiment for my first time in Asia. Seeing a smile on every kids' face will be something I won’t forget!" - Philippe Martel, 2017 participant


Students and the three program directors will be housed at the Quyhn Anh Hotel. The hotel is located in the town of Pleiku within distance of  restaurants and cafes. All students will be matched with one or two roommates. The hotel rate is $14 (USD) per night, and this cost is split between roommates.


Organized mini-van transportation will be used to travel from the hotel to the orphanage and back each day. Students will need to get to Pleiku airport where they will be met by program leaders. Direct flights are available from Hanoi to Pleiku and Ho Chi Minh City to Pleiku.


Students are responsible for all their meals, including their packed lunch for their workdays. Inexpensive and healthy restaurants are plentiful in Pleiku as are grocery stores for supplies.


$1750 CAD / $1500 USD (does not include airfare, room and board)
