InterAction Internships

InterAction offers internship opportunities three times a year, corresponding with the academic calendar and summer term. InterAction holds several hundred meetings a year on various humanitarian and development topics and issues. All interns are encouraged to participate in as many events as their schedule can handle. In addition, our interns often engage with key internal and external stakeholders and can leverage the relationships they build in their future careers. InterAction also seeks to provide internal learning opportunities through informational interviews, skills building brown bags and our own staff meetings, which are often full of useful information.

All applicants must have some combination of academic, volunteer or professional experience relevant to the position for which they are applying. They must be able to work with minimal supervision and commit to at least 20 hours per week. Applicants should have excellent written and spoken English skills, strong computer skills (including Microsoft Word and Excel) and good interpersonal and organizational skills.

Internships are unpaid; however, InterAction interns can receive transportation reimbursement of up to $50 per month.

Examples of areas interns can participate in include, but not limited to:

  1. Food security, climate and environment, health, the MDG/post-2015 development framework and the NGO Aid Map initiative
  2. Public policy, including attending Capitol Hill briefings and hearings
