The United Nations Foundation links the UN’s work with others around the world, mobilizing the energy and expertise of business and non-governmental organizations to help the UN tackle issues including climate change, global health, peace and security, women's empowerment, poverty eradication, energy access, and U.S.-UN relations.
The Better World Campaign (BWC), the sister organization of the UN Foundation and United Nations Association-USA, works to foster a strong and effective relationship between the United States and the United Nations through outreach, communications, and advocacy. We encourage U.S. leadership to work constructively with the UN to enhance the UN’s ability to carry out its invaluable operations around the world. In addition, we engage policymakers, the media, and the American public to increase awareness of and support for the UN.
The Better World Campaign intern will learn from the team how BWC works to educate Congress and the American public on the work of the United Nations.
The Intern will report to the Executive Director for UN Foundation Advocacy and Global Health Advocacy.
The United Nations Foundation offers unpaid semester-long full and part-time internships. The candidate should be willing to start in January 2018. The United Nations Foundation is happy to host interns who are able to receive academic credit or a stipend through their college or university. However, please note that it is not a requirement in order to intern with us.
