The Carolina Peace Resource Center offers organizing internships in the Fall and the Spring. A limited number of internships with a $500 stipend are available. Additional uncompensated internships are possible as are volunteer positions.
The internship is carried forward on flexible hours of independent work and coordinated via a weekly meeting. 5-10 hours a week are expected with a total of 75 internships hours to be completed by internship end over 3-4 months.
College credit is possible through the internship. You must contact your university and pursue an independent study in conjunction with the internship, usually through the political science department.
Interns will learn the basics of activism and organizing including putting together public education and advocacy campaigns. Interns will help draft an internship plan that will match their interests and abilities with the needs and goals of the Carolina Peace Resource Center. Interest areas may be among a range of issues reflecting peace, justice and environmental concerns. We will also consider interns specializing in communications.
