Nonviolence International New York is always looking for dynamic and driven individuals to join the team. Interns undertake projects in one or more of our five focus areas, which will typically involve background research, analysis of U.N. documentation and preparation for U.N. events by drafting articles and reports. Team members will also have the opportunity to collaborate with other international NGOs in order to develop strategy to influence U.N. resolutions and raise awareness of our focus areas within civil society.


As team members, you will have the opportunity to attend U.N. conferences throughout the course of the internship, to learn how it works and how civil society can contribute to its processes. You will be encouraged to network at the U.N. to build ties with other advocates to further the cause of Nonviolence International New York as well as to benefit your own career. Conferences usually last an entire day and can also involve invitations to evening events.


Applicants should have a strong interest in international relations as well as economic and social issues. Nonviolence International prides itself on the variety of our team’s backgrounds however, an academic education in international relations or political science will be to your advantage. The nature of the word requires excellent research, analytical and drafting skills. Applicants will also be expected to work well within a team but also be able to exhibit self-reliance and independence. Moderate computer literacy is also beneficial.

If you are interested, please send the following to the email address below:


  • Resume;

  • Cover Letter; &

  • Writing Sample (3-5 page academic paper) 

Interviews will be held either on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday at 11am or 1pm.
