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.


All interns at UNAGB assist in general office duties. In addition, interns specialize in an area of UNA-GB's work, such as:

Helping plan and implement Middle and High School Model UN conferences, network with MUN Clubs, and local universities and general assistance to the Education Director. Applicants should have Model UN experience.
