Be an Intern with Human Rights Watch this Fall 2012
HRW offers an unpaid internship program for recent University and College graduates two times a year: winter/spring (Jan. - Apr.) and fall (Sept.- Dec.). Internship opportunities are available for individuals interested in learning about our work and making a contribution to our organization in our Toronto office.
You may be familiar with Human Rights Watch from some of the outreach work and film screenings that have taken place on campus, or from the annual Human Rights Watch Film Festival at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. It's one of the world's leading independent organizations committed to defending and protecting human rights - you can read more at their official website.The Toronto office is primarily development based and does limited advocacy - there are no research based positions or program divisions. Interns are asked to work a minimum of 18 hours per week, 3 days a week for 4 months.
For more information about this internship opportunity, check out the page here. They're accepting applications from now up to August 8th - you can send your cover letter and resume to Alison Thornton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you aren't a graduate and would still like to be involved with advocacy work for Human Rights Watch, consider joining the HRW Student Outreach Committee at Ryerson. All you need to do to learn more is send an email to Stephan Tang at email@example.com!
