Internship Program

InterAction offers volunteer internship opportunities three times a year, corresponding with the academic calendar and summer term. InterAction values our interns, and we seek to provide them with unique opportunities to engage in a large variety of learning and development opportunities. Our offices hold 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. Open internship positions will be posted on the following calendar:
  • Fall Semester: July
  • Spring Semester: November
  • Summer Semester: March
