INTERNSHIP PROGRAMS & VOLUNTEERING
The purpose of our internship program is to give a chance to students interested in peace building and conflict resolution to learn about our work and the different change-making approaches of our grantee organizations and movements in Israel and the West Bank. Our interns also get a chance to deepen their knowledge about the challenges on the ground while helping us and adding value to our efforts in Geneva.
Contact us if you would like to submit your application.
Our internship program alumni usually remain in contact with us and continue to volunteer for us, even remotely. They become our ambassadors on their campuses and communities.
If you have a skill that is useful to us – it’s worth all the money in the world ! We often need talented people but also extra hands when it comes to our functions in Geneva !
