Tavaana's Internship Program

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.

The following are attributes of a well-qualified candidate for this program:

  • Interest in Tavaana's mission;
  • Superb writing, editing and research skills;
  • Proven work ethic and willingness to take initiative;
  • Creativity;
  • Ability to take instructions and work with minimal supervision;
  • Conscientious, professional attitude;
  • International experience is a plus;
  • Second language (Persian or Arabic) is desirable, but not required; and
  • Proficiency in Adobe Suite, HTML/CSS and/or Drupal is a plus.

What you can expect to gain from the experience

You will gain highly sought-after skills at a small but highly dynamic, fast growing NGO. During your internship, you will work on substantial, thought-provoking assignments and will work in close proximity to our staff, providing you with opportunities for learning and growth. Tavaana interns attend events in Washington, build networks, and gain new skills through practical experience. When making hiring decisions for new consultants and staff, Tavaana has always looked to interns who have shown promise and passion during their internships.

Location, start date, and duration of internship

You can apply to complete your internship with Tavaana at our Bethesda, MD office or – if you reside outside of the Washington, DC area – through a virtual internship. Preference will be given to applicants who are available to work in the office. The internship applications are accepted on a rolling basis, and interns must be able to commit to a minimum of 12 hours/week.

How to apply

To apply, submit an application to info@eciviced.org that includes the following:

  • Your resume;
  • A one-page cover letter explaining your interest specifically in Tavaana; 
  • An English language writing sample that demonstrates your writing, analytical, and research skills.

Please include the subject heading: [Your full name]: INTERN APPLICATION.
