Every semester, WOLA’s new interns are paired with staff mentors and absorbed into the work of the organization. They collaborate on a mix of research, analytical, and administrative work, and they are encouraged to get involved in the day-to-day activities of their teams.
WOLA selects three interns per session (Spring, Summer, and Fall), and each intern is assigned to work with two of the programs from the following; Border Security, Central American Monitor, Colombia, Communications, Cuba, Development/Fundraising, Drug Policy, Mexico and Migrant Rights, Operations and Human Resources, and Venezuela. The available programs are based on the intern’s interests as well as WOLA’s needs; they change every session.
Interns also participate in the behind-the-scenes work of running a non-profit organization, including helping with technology, media, finance, and event planning. To learn more, click here.
Internships are available in Fundraising, Communications, and Foreign Policy. Details about each program and application instructions may be found at: https://www.wola.org/get-involved/internships/.
