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.
Shot@Life is an initiative of the United Nations Foundation that raises awareness and funds to support life-saving vaccines for children in developing countries. There are three distinct, but interrelated, components: an intensive effort to raise awareness and mobilize resources from Americans in support of childhood immunizations in the developing world; an intensive advocacy effort aimed at Washington policymakers, and partnerships with other US-based membership organizations to reach a large number of Americans with our message.
The Shot@Life Grassroots Advocacy Intern will learn from the Manager and Campaign Associate on how Shot@Life works to increase grassroots constituency and support the activities of the Shot@Life Champions, the campaign’s most committed individuals who advocate, educate, and fundraise for access to vaccines.
The United Nations Foundation offers unpaid fall and part-time internships. We are 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 to intern with us. The intern should be able to begin in January 2018.
