Intern or Campus Leader
As an intern or campus leader, you’ll be part of the movement to transform education in Malaysia.
Interns work full-time with one of our teams for 3 months, gaining valuable professional experience in the process.
Campus leaders receive training to become education ambassadors, representing Teach For Malaysia at university campuses worldwide.
Many of our interns are also campus leaders – you are welcome to apply for both.
Meet our Interns!
We are extremely proud of our interns. They are a driven and capable bunch of individuals who are part of our movement of change.
From Day 1, interns can expect to work closely with team members on important and impactful projects. We develop our interns to shoulder real responsibilities and deliver meaningful outcomes for the organisation.
Interns can also expect to gain better insight into the non-profit and education sector, and have a clearer picture of their role in ending education inequity in Malaysia.
- "Interning with TFM taught me more about myself than it did about the organisation as it allowed me to gain new learnings every day, from stakeholder management right up to building emotional resilience. It gave me a unique satisfaction as I learned how to challenge myself and take charge of my own learning with tonnes of support from peers and seniors."
Intern, Partnership Development (Corporations & Foundations)
- "I have always been interested in the social impact sphere but I had a very fixed mindset about the kind of person I needed to be, the skills I should have mastered, and the kind of values I would have to exemplify to really be able to make a positive change in society. After encountering the highly diverse staff of TFM though, I see things a little differently. TFM has taught me that to truly make an impact on society, it takes a lot of fundamentally different people, working together to realise their shared belief in a better, brighter future."

Intern, Talent, Strategy & Operations

- "Throughout my internship with TFM, I didn’t feel like an intern. From representing TFM in the Mega Career Fair briefing to co-managing team members throughout the Mega Career Fair, I have been entrusted with big tasks, Not to mention, the fun part of working, eating and learning together with the team. Be it an intern, staff, manager or even a director, it's always fun to learn from each other and improve everyday."

Meet our Campus Leaders!
Campus Leaders are a global network of university students united by a common mission – to improve education outcomes in Malaysia.
As Teach For Malaysia brand ambassadors, Campus Leaders work closely with the recruitment team to help spread the word about our movement on their university campuses around the world.
Campus Leaders play a significant role in the movement, and can expect to gain exposure working on high visibility campaigns to attract top graduates to the Teach For Malaysia Fellowship.
- "My teachers throughout high school have undoubtedly encouraged me to think critically, but this is not something everyone can say for themselves. Being a campus leader for Teach For Malaysia gives me the opportunity to empower others to think critically through organization of discussions and interactive events with my peers."
Derrick Lee Chung Hoe
Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS)
- "During my time as a Campus Leader, it has connected me to many people in and outside of my university. These connections built upon a shared passion for fighting against education inequity will be invaluable in the years to come. I am extremely grateful to be a part of this movement, and will forever be reminded of my time alongside it."
Muhamad Faiz Danial
University of Michigan - Ann Arbor
- "Working as a TFM Campus Leader made me more courageous in exploring a world that is beyond my comfort zone. I learned to be critical and creative to promote my fundraising campaign. Though I had never met my team due to the pandemic, we definitely had a sweet time establishing solid teamwork by supporting each other with our tasks."
Nur Aisyah Ahmad Fadzli
International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM)
- "Becoming a TFM ambassador to my peers has raised my confidence and social conscience to contribute to something much bigger than myself. A highlight of being part of the Fundraising Team was pushing myself out of my comfort zone for the social media workout challenge, and making some awesome (and driven!) new friends along the way. Returning to TFM as a Campus Leader has empowered me to lead myself, lead others and lead change - a mindset that will be very valuable in the future!"
