The Borgen Project believes that the leaders of the most powerful nation on earth, the U.S., should be doing more to address global poverty.
The Borgen Project is an innovative national campaign that works with U.S. leaders to improve their response to the global poverty crisis and make poverty a focus of U.S. foreign policy.
The Borgen Project has several internship and volunteer openings that may be of interest to students. Internships range from Political Affairs, HR, PR/Marketing, Writing, and Journalism.
All internship and volunteer programs provide experience in advocacy, mobilizing, and fundraising, coupled with real industry exposure and an insight into the nonprofit world.
The details of the different positions can be found on our website here.
Internship Location: The programs are based online, so can be undertaken from any location.
Internship Start Dates: We have new programs starting every month, as such applications can be received at any time, through our website. Interns choose the start date that is most appropriate for them.
Mentoring and Supervision: All of our internships have a designated manager who will ensure that our interns are offered an induction to the program and then support throughout the internship with regular online catch-up calls, training/discussion sessions, and are a point of contact for any questions or concerns throughout the program.
Internships are unpaid, but options to receive academic credit are available.
Feel free to contact Lynsey Alexander with any questions about The Borgen Project and internship programs.
