Intersections International leads people to unite across lines of difference in mutual pursuit of social justice, globally and locally. We create safe space at the crossroads of some of our world’s most critical conflicts, engaging dissimilar communities in dialogue, service, advocacy and artistic expression. Together, we work toward a just world—united in diversity. To learn more about go to www.intersections.org.
At Intersections International, we envision a time when our distinct identities no longer incite division, discrimination, destruction and despair. We envision a just world—united in diversity, a world in which human differences serve to advance connection, equality, respect and abundance for all people.
Our four interactive programs stand at the intersections of veterans and civilians, divided nations and peoples, artistic engagement and community values, and Christianity and LGBTQ equality. Intersections’ unique and proven methodology creates safe space for people to come together across these lines—in contrasting (and sometimes volatile) environments. We work with our participants to discover common ground and pursue justice through four modes of action: dialogue, service, advocacy and artistic expression.
We are proud to open our doors to sharp students who wish to take full advantage of our exciting internship opportunities. Selected talented students will be mentored and exposed to our four program areas. In addition, students will experience the pleasure of working in a small yet robust nonprofit work environment where they will get more hands on experience and recognition than they can imagine. Entrepreneurial students will have an opportunity to have a meaningful experience in making a difference in the communities we serve by working alongside experienced staff members, collaborating on strengthening the foundation of current programs, promoting the organization’s online presence, increase available academic and abstract resources and influence national and international policy.

Intersections’ internships are associated with an academic program for which the student will receive academic credit, and for which there are hours/supervision requirements.
Internship opportunities are open to qualified students affiliated with an accredited academic institution for academic credit. Our internships are unpaid, but we will support academic institution requirements for students by completing all paperwork required by the intern’s school or program and providing daily refreshments.
All interns will have direct supervision from a staff member. Our members are committed to ensuring that interns have appropriate assignments that are related to the student’s academic program.
