Peacebuilding as a field, and the Alliance for Peacebuilding as an organization, are in a unique stage of innovation; we are in a position to offer outstanding candidates a rich learning opportunity to lead and create. AfP’s interns work at the intersection of the international peacebuilding field in our nation’s capital. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about the peacebuilding field from the inside, with broad exposure to a wide variety of civil society organizations, government and military partners, and representatives from fields closely related to peacebuilding.
Below are summaries describing an ideal candidate for each position:
Policymaker Engagement – Entrepreneurial "doers" who want to help create opportunities for the latest innovations of peacebuilders around the world to shape U.S. engagements in conflict-affected regions.
Learning and Evaluation – You are good with numbers and are interested in using data analysis to evaluate ongoing projects within the peacebuilding field. You have good attention to detail and are comfortable working in a team based environment.
Membership & Development – "People" people who think in terms of relationships, not just programs, and want to help expand and connect AfP's growing network of peacebuilding organizations. In addition, strategic thinkers who want to hone their fundraising skills and learn how the philanthropic sectors can catalyze the peacebuilding solutions of tomorrow.
Communications - Creative wordsmiths who want to harness the power of narrative to expand the boundaries of peacebuilding.
We encourage you to consider applying for or sharing these opportunities with your contacts and networks. Thank you in advance for your help!
