 SALLY YUDELMAN

 INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

WOLA’s Sally Yudelman Internship Program seeks to give interns hands-on experience

and broad exposure to human rights advocacy and the foreign policy-making process. WOLA

has hosted interns since the late 1980’s, and today our former interns can be found around

the world working as human rights advocates, congressional aides, lawyers, journalists,

professors, and even as members of WOLA’s senior staff.

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 seven undergraduate interns per semester, and each intern is assigned to a

different program area—communications, fundraising, or one of many policy areas. Interns

also get involved in the behind-the-scenes work of running a non-profit organization,

including helping with technology, media, finance, and event planning.

WOLA’s internship program is named in honor of Sally Yudelman for her commitment and

contribution to WOLA and the cause of social justice. Following Sally’s example, we hope to

encourage the next generation of young people to get involved in advocating for human

rights in Latin America.

For a look at former Yudelman interns’ experience at and reflections on their internship at

WOLA, check out WOLA’s Intern Blog and Intern Twitter.

TYPES OF INTERNSHIPS

Fundraising Internships

Fundraising interns assist with various aspects of fundraising and institutional

development, including event logistics and planning, database management, mail and email

campaigns, grant writing, and other responsibilities as part of the fundraising team. Interns

will learn about donor cultivation and stewardship and prospect research. The position

provides a hands-on experience in development and assures broad exposure to each of

WOLA’s different program areas. Fundraising internships will give students experience in

the art of communicating WOLA’s mission and work to our broad base of supporters, and

are ideally suited for students interested in non-profit management or philanthropy—in

addition to human rights and Latin America. Experience with event planning and

administration, fundraising, or database management is a plus.

Communications Internships

Communications interns assist with social media, WOLA’s website, content development,

press relationships, video filming and editing, and a variety of other responsibilities as a

part of the communications team. The position provides a unique look at the intersection

of strategic communications, social media, press work, and the promotion of human rights

in Latin America. Communications internships will give students experience helping to turn

compelling stories into action by articulating WOLA’s mission and work for different

target audiences, and are ideally suited for students interested in journalism, content

production, strategic communications, or marketing—in addition to human rights and

Latin America. Experience with technical software, press work, or multimedia is a plus.

Foreign Policy Internships (Five Programs)

Policy interns are each assigned to a specific programmatic area at WOLA (Drug

Policy/Defense Oversight, Cuba, Colombia, Citizen Security, and Mexico). Within each

program, interns take on a wide range of responsibilities; on any given day, one intern

might attend a hearing on Capitol Hill while another translates a press release and another

conducts research for a memo. The position includes immersion into one of WOLA’s

program teams, and offers students first-hand experience in the research, strategy, and

development of human rights advocacy. Policy interns are ideally suited for students

interested in international relations, foreign policy, or political science—in addition to

human rights and Latin America. Experience with translation, technical writing, research,

and intermediate Portuguese is a plus.

If you are selected for an internship, you will receive a $1,000 stipend from WOLA

towards the end of your internship. A travel allowance is also provided. Internship stipends

are not considered salary, but are awarded to help defray living expenses for an intern

during their internship. Interns receive a financial summary at the end of each calendar

year and are responsible for meeting their own state and federal tax obligations.

Approximately 30% of the internship is administrative in nature— helping with clerical

needs, or working on a specific task. All other time is spent on substantive work. Interns

are required to work 40 hours per week during the summer and 24-40 hours per week

during the fall and spring. We offer an academically and professional enriching

environment for interns to learn and grow. WOLA is willing to work with students to

arrange for university credit.

Interested applicants should have a demonstrated interest in human rights, democracy,

and social justice in Latin America; initiative and flexibility; the ability to work in a fastpaced

environment; good organizational skills; follow-through and attention to detail.

Motivated, self-starting interns excel at WOLA. A minimum of intermediate-advanced

Spanish proficiency is required. Technical skills are highly desired. In general, the Internship

Program is not open to students who have passed beyond their undergraduate studies due

to its significant administrative component.

WOLA values a diverse workplace, and encourages minority candidates to apply.

WOLA is an equal opportunity employer, and does not discriminate based upon race,

color, creed, national origin, sex, age, disability, marital status, sexual orientation,

prior record of arrest or conviction, or caregiver status. WOLA does not sponsor

visas for students outside of the United States.

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

In order to be considered for an internship, WOLA needs the following materials:

1) Resume.

2) Cover letter in which you state:

a. Your specific dates of availability.

b. Your willingness to work at least 24-40 hours per week.

Latin America, and your Spanish language abilities.

3) The names of two references with email addresses and daytime phone numbers.

Contact information is preferred over written letters of recommendation.

New Additions for 2017

UGANDA: Human Rights

For years, we have had requests for a human rights placement, and I'd say, "Do you mean the detention, the torture or the killing part?" In other words, where there are gross human rights violations, it is usually dangerous to speak up.

We are proud to finally have an excellent (and safe) human rights placement:

work on civic education, training people about their rights; electoral and democracy building -

emphasizing term limits to thwart leaders from becoming despots and Presidents-for-Life;

criminal justice work  in the prisons or anti- corruption work (which is a big deal throughout Africa).

GREECE: Syrian Refugees

Get first hand experience helping in a refugee camp.

People are needed to prepare refugees to go to their host country.

Teachers are needed to catch refugee kids up on the years of school they have missed.

Social workers and psychologists are needed for trauma counseling.

People are needed to teach English, yoga and art; and sort incoming supplies.

COSTA RICA, ECUADOR, SIERRA LEONE: Micro-finance & Small Enterprise Development

Micro-finance is seen by many as a ticket out of poverty.

Costa Rica: hilarious director is also a great place to learn leadership skills. Spanish is a must.

Ecuador: work with indigenous women in the Andes; see how micro-finance grew out of Liberation Theology.

Sierra Leone: the most critical thing is helping entrepreneurs dream up & overcome hurdles of a small enterprise.

Throughout Africa, they teach the same skill - e.g. sewing - to 5o women then they all compete with each other.

NGOabroad has shown that entrepreneurs are more prosperous if they have a unique & needed enterprise.

Each year, CGI U hosts a meeting where students, university representatives, topic experts, and celebrities come together to discuss and develop innovative solutions to pressing global challenges. But CGI U is more than just a meeting- it is a growing community of young leaders who don't just discuss global challenges but they take real, concrete steps toward solving them. Throughout the year, and as a prerequisite of attending the CGI U meeting, students develop their own Commitments to Action: new, specific, and measurable initiatives that address pressing challenges on campus, in local communities, or around the world.
