UNA-GB Interns at UN Day Flag Raising

Meet some of our past interns!

Are you interested in global education? Do you want to learn the ins and outs of a nonprofit organization? Do you have Model UN experience? Do you enjoy planning events? If you answered yes to these questions, then an internship at the UNA-GB is the internship for you!

UNAGB Interns learn all aspects of producing and coordinating programming in a nonprofit organization and are given high levels of responsibility. Our interns are an integral part of the UNA-GB team. As UNA-GB is a small organization, a premium is placed on initiative and the ability to work independently. Flexibility, ingenuity, and follow-through are essential. Guidance is provided for all projects undertaken but interns are expected to have a high level of independence and an ability to function comfortably in a professional setting.

The background recommended for interns applying for positions is experience in working, traveling or studying abroad, studying foreign languages or cultures, Model UN experience, working in a professional setting, utilizing social networks and other communication tools effectively, good writing skills, making presentations, and working with children. The time commitment is 20-40 hours per week. Priority is given to interns who are able to spend two or more semesters at the UNA-GB. While the internships are unpaid, they offer the interns valuable experience in a professional work setting and the opportunity to expand their network within the Boston community.
