Internships & Fellowships
We have a dynamic Leadership Fellowship (32-40 hours per week), Apprenticeship (25-32 hours per week), and Internship Program (20-25 hours per week) and we are currently accepting applications.
These programs are ideal for anyone looking to gain tangible skills in a wide-range of areas as well as hands-on experience of the day-to-day operations of an education-focused non-profit. This is great for building a network and building professional skills that give candidates more of an edge in the job market or keeping professional skills active while searching for jobs. Leadership Fellows, Apprentices, and Interns work on one or more of our teams: Operations, Teacher Support, Outreach, or Marketing, and each of these small teams is led by a Leadership Fellow.
This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to gain useful experience in a fun and diverse environment. You will build skills while making a difference and supporting a great cause!
Below is a basic description of each team’s role to help you understand which team might be a good fit for you:
Develop your writing and communication skills. This is focused on the GLN Student and Volunteer experience and Operations Team members are constantly assisting students and volunteers and finding ways to make their GLN experience more valuable. This is a great way to get a hands-on experience with the day-to-day administration of a small non-profit.
Develop your cultural diplomacy and communication skills. This is focused on the GLN Teacher experience and Teacher Support Team members are constantly assisting GLN Teachers with training, class preparation, logistical support, and finding ways to make their GLN experience more valuable. This is a great way to be more involved with the education side.
Take the mission and vision of GLN and get it out there to the world! Start with creating social media content and then find meaningful ways to grow our network of teachers, students, partners, and volunteers by sharing GLN experiences and stories on public platforms and getting people talking about GLN, in DC and around the globe.
Take the mission and vision of GLN and bring it directly to organizations, companies, embassies, associations, and student groups by direct email, phone, and in-person outreach. Build your sales, public speaking, and advocacy skills by helping us grow our network of teachers, students, partners, and volunteers through direct communication and building partnerships in DC and around the globe.
