Tavaana internships are an exciting opportunity for those seeking careers in social change to work at the nexus of technology, education, and democratic development. Working side-by-side with staff and in-house experts, interns meaningfully contribute to dynamic, fast-growing projects that address some of the most pressing civil society issues in the Middle East, and especially in Iran. Tavaana interns share ideas and actively participate in the development of new projects and initiatives. Interns are often promoted to paid positions.
Based on your interests and particular set of skills, Tavaana will consistently provide you with challenging and energizing work. Over the course of your internship, you will be given substantial assignments that require you to leverage skills developed in the classroom while gaining new skills, contacts, and a greater understanding of civic education, social media, civil society, human rights, and Iran. You will learn about the inner workings of an NGO through first-hand experience working on programmatic assignments. In a typical day, you may be asked to research a case study on democratic transition, write an abstract for a new translation of an influential text, or – depending on your Arabic or Persian fluency – translate a short text.
Who should apply?
If you are a rising college senior, recent college graduate, or a graduate student with a passion for human rights, democracy, civic education, and/or the role of technology in social change, you should apply for Tavaana's internship program.
