Intern at IRF Secretariat
 

The convener of the IRF Roundtable

Why intern at IRF Secretariat?

At IRF Secretariat we see the importance of getting the next generation involved in the international religious freedom movement. Our internships are designed to support academic objectives with real life work experience where we challenge students to enhance their critical thinking, creative and communication skills. We offer a variety of internships throughout the year to undergraduate, Master's, and PhD students as well as recent graduates.

We ensure our interns get first-hand experiences by seeing how an NGO operates, working with members of the Roundtable, assisting our working groups, reviewing Multi-Faith Letters, and doing research on legislation regarding IRF.

Our interns (which we call associates) work towards advancing the IRF Roundtable's mission of advocating for everyone, everywhere, no matter their religion or belief. They'll further their knowledge of building bridges of understanding between different faith communities.
