UNA-GB 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.

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.
