Internship with The UN Refugee Agency (Washington DC)

The United States Association for UNHCR (USA for UNHCR) supports the UN Refugee Agency's humanitarian work to protect and assist refugees around the world. We strive to meet the needs of the world's most vulnerable people, building support and awareness in the United States for UNHCR's life-saving relief programs.

Building support for the life-saving work of UNHCR is no small task. USA for UNHCR currently has 5 national fundraising offices throughout the United States that work toward this objective 6 days per week. We have offices and corresponding internships in D.C, Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix and Miami.

We are looking to hire 2-3 interns in each city and this internship is strictly administrative. You must coordinate with your guidance counselor to ensure that we are meeting legal criteria for an unpaid internship and that the benefit of the experience fits within the framework of your academic development and course work. This position would require at least 4 hours per day of work in one of our fundraising offices and tasks will include taking meeting notes, attending field or regional briefings, inventory control, answering phones and other administrative tasks and errands.

We will be executing 3 events this summer for World Refugee Day and the administrative internship will have some responsibilities in helping to execute objectives for successful events.

Apply today! Cut-off for submission of summer internships applications is June 15, 2012.

Please review our website at to see the work to which you will be contributing at USA for UNHCR.
