Program Design & Development Intern

Internships – Washington , District of Columbia
Department Internships
Employment Type Intern

Organizational Overview:

Since 1993, Women for Women International has helped over 495,000 marginalized women in countries affected by war and conflict. We serve women in 8 countries offering support, tools, and access to life-changing skills to move from crisis and poverty to stability and economic self-sufficiency.

We bring women together in a safe space to learn life, business, and vocational skills. Once enrolled, each receives a monthly stipend – a vital support that enables her to participate.

Women increase their ability to earn an income with new skills that are in-demand and specific to each country context. They learn about financial decision-making and how to earn an income, health and nutrition, human and legal rights, and the importance of working together in social networks. The result: stronger and empowered women, healthy families, and more stable communities. This ripple effect is profound.

Internship Description:
