Intern with Peace Boat US

Intern with Peace Boat US

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, social media, networking, photography, communications, public speaking, and very importantly, a passion to support the issues that Peace Boat US works on.
