Interns are part of The Advocates for Human Rights' mission. The Advocates for Human Rights strives to seed the human rights movement in the next generation by offering a wide range of internships to undergraduates, graduate students, and law students.
Whether helping to write website content, coordinate volunteers, research country conditions, or conduct client intake, every intern will learn about the international human rights framework and build skills in specific areas.
If you are interested in interning with The Advocates for Human Rights and can commit 8-12 hours per week (September to May) or 20-40 hours per week (June-August), consider becoming an intern.
Applicants for outside funding must submit their internship applications at least 4 weeks in advance of the funding program's deadline to ensure we have time to review your internship application. Applicants for Equal Justice Works, Soros, Skadden or similar fellowships must work with The Advocates for Human Rights' program staff to develop a proposal.
