Internship Program

The Baha'i International Community’s United Nations Office offers internships throughout the year. We accept applications year round. Interns are selected to work in one or more of the following areas:  human rights, gender equality, social development, sustainable development, and website development. The work is carried out under the guidance of the Senior Researcher and/or one of our Representatives to the United Nations. Internships can be completed on a full-time or part-time basis depending on the project and the availability of the candidate. While we are not able to provide financial remuneration, candidates with visas permitting them to work in the United States receive a lunch stipend and reimbursement for commuting expenses.

Interns may be asked to assist with: conducting background research to inform the Office’s policy and programmatic work; attending and briefing staff on relevant meetings at the UN and in the NGO community; preparation of contributions to UN Commissions and major events; Representatives’ work on NGO Committees; translating and editing documents; developing website content; and some administrative tasks. Please visit the Interns’ Blog to learn more about the work of our past and current interns.
