War Resister’s League Internships
The War Resister’s League offers two internship programs at their national office in New York City.
The Harrop A. and Ruth S. Freeman Peace Internship Endowment provides an opportunity for young people to become involved with a variety of tasks in a national antiwar organization and to develop as leaders. Applicants with experience in youth organizing, popular education/training, and campaign work are especially encouraged to apply. Web and design skills are a plus. Freeman Internships generally run for a twelve-week period. Interns work 20 hours a week, primarily with one of WRL’s Organizing Staff on a number of organizing projects and administrative tasks.
The Sara Bilezikian Peace Internship supports the development of young activists by cultivating their interest in nonviolence and antimilitarism. The Sara Bilezikian Internship Program provides young people with an opportunity to learn and refine grassroots organizing skills and be mentored by seasoned activists. The internship provides a stipend for approximately 13 weeks. During this period interns will become immersed in the intricacies of a project and they will have an opportunity to hone such skills as research, writing, participating in and conducting meetings, and building campaigns. Some interns may end up contributing to the production of educational materials, publishing articles, or traveling to a training, conference or other events.
