Our internships last  between 3-6 months.  We’ll need you for 20 hours a week.  You can work remotely. 


This is an unpaid internship – but is an exceptional opportunity to gain experience at an international non-profit with an ambitious mission. We will gladly work with your institution to give you academic credit for your experience.
