Save the Children offers a number of unpaid internship positions in our Fairfield, CT and Washington DC offices as well as in some of our U.S. Field Offices. Internships are offered throughout the spring, summer and fall semesters. Interns will have the opportunity to work under the direct supervision of an experienced Save the Children staff member, within a specific department, to expand their knowledge of the humanitarian aid, non-profit industry, while at the same time develop skills and experience in their chosen field or career. Their work is focused on advancing important projects such as: program and policy research, internet and social media projects, communications and campaigns, and fundraising.
We require that interns work a minimum of 15 to 20 hours per week with a maximum of 38 hours per week. Internships are unpaid and we do not offer housing arrangements.
