We partner with students at accredited colleges and universities to connect their talents, passions, and education to internship opportunities. 

Interns have worked with our legal office, our monitoring and evaluation office, our communications and marketing department, IT, as well as our global health, clean water, and protection focus areas.

Although internships are normally based in our office located in Alexandria, Virginia, and occasionally in one of our offices globally, all internship are currently virtual due to COVID-19.
