Internship Opportunities

Are you interested in working for human rights and social justice worldwide? San Francisco-based Global Exchange is an international human rights organization dedicated to promoting social, economic and environmental justice around the world. We take a holistic approach to creating change, and as an education and action resource center, we advance our vision by working to ensure our members and constituents are empowered locally and connected globally to create a just and sustainable world.

Global Exchange’s success is largely due to the involvement of dedicated interns and staff. Since we are a grassroots organization, volunteers in our office are critical. Your help is needed!  

Interns work directly with a Global Exchange staff person but are expected to be self-motivated, creative, and willing to make a set time commitment based on project needs. We request a minimum commitment of two months for the summer months and a one month commitment for other times of the year. Interns must be available a minimum of 15 hours/week during regular business hours, but a commitment of 20 hours/week is preferred. Interns are expected to assist with basic office work.

Please find a list of open intern positions below.

Marketing Intern 

Global Exchange seeks a Marketing/Communications Intern to design and implement a marketing strategy for our Reality Tours.

Candidates who also have experience in social justice/human rights are especially encouraged to apply. The intern will be asked to produce content for eblasts, social media and other marketing materials, and will need to feel comfortable incorporating sociopolitical analysis and socially conscious language into effective marketing materials. Experience with tourism (especially sustainable tourism), graphic design, social media marketing and analytics, and/or human rights/international solidarity preferred.
