Peace Boat US offers an excellent opportunity to gain insight and experience in the civil society, non-profit, non-governmental field, with one of the most unique and interesting NGO’s in the world – experience that will help you stand out.
Interns and volunteers support office administration, attend events at the UN as Peace Boat US representatives, support campaigns, projects, and educational programs through outreach efforts, and write news and blog articles about our activities. Especially valuable skills and qualities include being multi-lingual (Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, French, and Japanese are especially helpful), graphic design, networking, photography, communications, public speaking, and very importantly, a passion to support the issues that Peace Boat US works on.
We’re looking for people who can commit to working in the office 15 hours per week for at least three consecutive months. Interns do not receive financial compensation, but may be eligible for discounts and/or scholarships for our programs onboard a Peace Boat voyage. Students often intern as part of their studies. Others find the Peace Boat US office after joining a voyage as a volunteer staff. We welcome applications for review on a case-by-case basis.
Whether you would like to work on a specific project (e.g. nuclear abolition), have a particular skill set to offer, or would just like to get involved, please let us know!
