Internship: Youth Outreach & Marketing At Search for Common Ground

Assist the world’s largest dedicated peacebuilding NGO in launching transformative work with young people in the US.

We are seeking interns to contribute to our efforts to popularize a form of youth activism that creates enduring systems change through collaborative approaches.

As the Youth Outreach & Marketing intern, you will be working closely with the Children & Youth team and the Development, Marketing, and Communications team to provide writing, digital content creation, research, project management, and creative support. The intern will play a key role in designing and implementing a variety of marketing, communications, and program development initiatives.

If you are a student and would like to earn course credit from your internship, we are willing to work with you to develop a comprehensive workload that is relevant to your field of study and professional interests.

We want our interns to make the most of this experience. To this end, we ask every intern to develop a set of strategic learning objectives at the beginning of their internship with their supervisor, outlining their key learning and professional needs.

While we’d prefer our interns be in-person, we can accommodate remote interns.
