About

This remote online internship and seminar will focus on the role non-governmental organizations play in education and development related to gender and sexuality as they intersect with race, migration, religion, disability and other axes of diversity. Participate in a month-long online internship with a Dutch NGO that focuses on education, activism, and/or development within the feminist, queer, minority, and migrant communities. Your work with the organization will be supplemented by virtual lectures and workshops on work-based norms in a global office; the position of NGOs in global development schemes; social responsibility, voluntourism and white saviorism; making a career of NGO work; and funding and government reporting, among others. You will be expected to contribute to the mission of the organization. Past contributions included developing surveys, completing a short-term research project, and creating content for educational and promotional material. You will complete weekly progress reports and write a seminar paper on your experience. Past SIT students have worked with the anti-trafficking organization Bridge2Hope, disability advocates Stichting Heppie Seks, the Black Archives, TRANS magazine, and fashion activism organization Diversity Rules. HIGHLIGHTS Gain real-world experience working remotely with a Netherlands-based NGO and broaden your perspectives on key program themes. Enrichen your resume and build career skills. Better understand how gender and sexuality intersect with race, ethnicity, class, and origin. Contribute to the work of important social justice organizations in our extensive network.
