APPLY TO BE AN INTERN
Learn about Our Internships
Accountability International periodically employs volunteer students as interns for periods when they are not in school.
Accountability International appreciates the contributions of volunteer Interns in fulfilling its mission. The intern both improve its skills and can add the intern experience to their CV. The services must therefore constitute a bona fide effort of the individual to volunteer for human rights for the benefit of education, training or professional experience.
The services are intended to be voluntary, mutually beneficial and normally to be rendered without compensation.
Individuals volunteer their time for their own personal motives, without promise or expectation of compensation or employment.
Anyone, including retirees, students, alumni, or others may provide volunteer service or perform internship activities.
Individuals under the age of 16 may not become volunteer interns.
The initial period for volunteering should be no longer than 6 months. The relationship may be extended for an additional 6-month terms with appropriate organisational review and approvals.
Volunteer services are generally limited to educational training (normally for unpaid interns) purposes and normally are rendered on a part-time and temporary nature. Accountability International defines volunteer interns as "individuals who volunteer or donate their services, usually on a part-time basis, to Accountability International to work on human rights objectives that are in alignment with our mission, vision and principles.”
