Intersections International leads people to unite across lines of difference in mutual pursuit of social justice, globally and locally. We create a 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 us 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 intersection 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. Qualified students, who are selected for an internship, will be mentored and exposed to our four program areas. In addition, students will experience the advantages 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. They will work alongside experienced staff members; collaborate on strengthening the foundation of current programs; promote the organization’s online presence; increase available academic and abstract resources; and influence national and international policy.
Go ahead and explore our website! We want you to get a better understanding of the work that we do. Then write to us. Let us know the specific area you are interested in for your spring/summer internship.
Intersections’ internships are associated with an academic program where the student will receive academic credit and have 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 the academic institution’s requirements for students by completing all necessary paperwork. We will also provide daily refreshments.
All interns will have direct supervision from a staff member. Our staff is committed to ensuring that interns have appropriate assignments that are related to the student’s academic program.
