The Sir John McGuckin Mentoring and Internship Program is funded by USA Northwestern Lieutenancy, USA Western Lieutenancy and Canadian Atlantic Lieutenancy.
For the third year running the Program sent ten Bethlehem University students to intern with Catholic Charities USA (https://catholiccharitiesusa.org/). For the first time three additional students joined the McGuckin Internship Program in Australia where they did student teaching at Loyola College in Melbourne, Australia (www.loyola.vic.edu.au).
The purpose of the McGuckin Internship program is to provide students of Bethlehem University with opportunities to gain valuable career focused as well as cultural experience from an international setting – and to also provide an opportunity for the participants to contribute back to both Bethlehem University as well as the Palestinian society by sharing their experience with others in coordination with the Alumni Relations and Guest Relations offices upon their return to Palestine after the internship experience
