Would you like to learn about the power of nonviolence, the global diverse movement taking shape now, and nonprofit management too? Then please consider applying to be an NVI Intern. (For information on our NYC office's impressive program, please see below.)
Internships are available in our DC office for students and non-students, and can be arranged for-credit with colleges and universities. We are working to raise funds to build our Internship Program. Currently these are unpaid internships.
As Nonviolence International’s staff is relatively small, interns play an integral role in NVI’s projects and functioning as a cohesive organization. While interns work closely with an NVI staff member, they are also expected to exhibit independence, creativity and self-sufficiency. Interns must be able to dedicate at least 15-20 hours per week on average for a minimum of three months. Each intern will have their time split between research, programmatic support, organizational outreach, and administrative tasks.
We currently have the following 4 tracks:
- Fundraising / Event Organizing
- Research including work on our Nonviolence Training Archive and Nonviolent Tactics Upcoming Book and Related Database
- Communications / Social Media/ Outreach
- Nonprofit Management
To read about the experience of some of our interns check out this post.
If ready to apply, please send a resume and cover letter to internsupervisor[at]nonviolenceinternational.net

Abdul Aziz Said Scholarship Fund
In recognition to lifelong contributions to peace by Professor Abdul Aziz Said, Nonviolence International has started a new program under which interns will receive stipends for their service. This financial aid is provided to perpetuate the legacy of Abdul Aziz Said, who co-founded Nonviolence International in 1989 and devoted his life to inspiring students to promote peace and global understanding. In particular, this scholarship will ensure that international students and those of modest financial means will have an equal opportunity to gain professional experience.
Abdul Aziz Said is a world-renowned educator. He is a Syrian-born writer and was a professor of international relations for 60 years at American University, where he was the founding director of the International Peace and Conflict Resolution department at the School of International Service.
Due to Professor Said's extensive history with the School of International Service, priority for internships will go to American University students and alumni. Internships are for 12-14 weeks in the summer, autumn, and winter seasons and are based in Washington D.C. Interns must be able to dedicate 15-20 hours a week to their assigned work and will provide a culminating report at the end of their service.
