Internship program

The Baha'i International Community’s United Nations Office offers internship opportunities throughout the year on both full-time and part-time bases, depending on the project and availability of the candidate. Working with the Office’s research staff and/or one of our Representatives to the UN, interns typically focus on a particular discourse the Office is engaged with, such as peace and security, human rights, the equality of women and men, social development, and sustainable development.

Interns may be asked to assist in a variety of capacities. These include conducting background research to support the Office’s policy and programmatic work; attending and briefing staff on relevant meetings at the UN and in the NGO community; assisting with preparation of documents for UN Commissions and major events; assisting with Representatives’ work on NGO Committees; translating and editing documents; developing website content; and carrying out administrative tasks. The BIC Interns’ Blog gives a sense of the work undertaken by some of our past and current interns.

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.
