The student-led movement to end mass atrocities.

Internships

IMG_7817

STAND is the leading student and youth-led movement committed to preventing and responding to mass atrocities and genocide. STAND works primarily on peer-to-peer education and advocacy, seeking to enshrine genocide education, atrocity prevention, and civilian protection into government foreign policy. Born out of the fight to stop the genocide in Darfur, Sudan, STAND is creating a sustainable student network that actively fights genocide wherever it occurs.

STAND is entirely run by students and youth, alongside a staff member who works in Washington DC. In the past year, STAND launched in the UK, moving from its prior US-specific focus,  and is preparing to launch in France by the end of 2017. As we expand, STAND interns will serve as a vital part of our team, taking on full responsibilities and contributing their creativity and skills to significant aspects of STAND. Interns should be self-motivated, hard-working, and, most importantly, committed to our mission.

Fundraising Interns

In order to sustain and resource our emerging international network of young activists, we are redoubling our fundraising efforts. We are looking for 1-2 interns to help us develop organizational fundraising systems, assist with grantwriting, and publicize our grassroots fundraising for on-the-ground initiatives such as #RiseForRohingya.

Preference will be given to those who can work in DC but remote activists who can work online are encouraged to apply as well. STAND is flexible about scheduling and will work with you to determine the best dates and times of your internship. These positions can be part-time or full time.

Prospective applicants should email a cover letter, resume, and short writing sample (300-500 words) to Mac Hamilton, STAND’s Executive Manager, at mhamilton@standnow.org with the internship position you are applying for as the subject line.

We will accept applications on a rolling basis through November 1, 2017. Internships will run until May 2018 unless otherwise discussed. This is an unpaid position, but you may be able to work with your high school or university to receive course credit.

Web Development Intern

We seek a highly motivated website programming intern to assist with website updates and maintenance. While basic prior experience is desired, we envision this as an opportunity for you to learn skills on the job, and will have a volunteer STAND alum to guide you.
