Nonviolence International

Would you like to learn about the power of nonviolence, the global movement taking shape now, and nonprofit management too?

Internships are for 12 to 14 weeks in the spring, summer, autumn and winter. This internship is based in Washington, DC. Interns must be able to dedicate 15-20 hours per week on average to their assigned work. A person of any major or field of interest is welcome to apply, a commitment to the concept of human rights and justice is one of the only requirements to achieve success at Nonviolence International.

As Nonviolence International’s staff is relatively small, interns play an integral role in NI’s projects and functioning as a cohesive organization. While interns work closely with an NVI staff member, they are also expected to exhibit independence, creativity and self-sufficiency. Interns must be able to dedicate 15-20 hours per week on average for a minimum of three months. Each intern will have their time split between research, programmatic support, organizational outreach, and administrative tasks.
