Accountability Counsel amplifies the voices of communities around the world to protect their human rights and environment. As advocates for people harmed by internationally financed projects, we employ community-driven and policy level strategies to access justice.
We accomplish our mission through three programs: in our Communities program, we assist communities with all aspects of effectively using non-judicial complaint offices. Our Policy Advocacy program works to ensure that those offices are accessible, independent, transparent, fair, and effective tools for justice. Finally, our Resources program provides research, trainings, and tools for communities and their advocates to understand how complaint offices work.
The Communications Intern will be a part of our new and growing communications team. Interns will support Accountability Counsel’s strategic communications goals as we grow in our field and increase our impact on the ground. Responsibilities include developing social media content, writing and editing news releases, drafting opinion pieces and other communications materials, researching media targets, and compiling clips. We are particularly seeking students in media and communications, international affairs, economics or pre-law studies.
Positions are unpaid, but we will be happy to work with your institution to arrange academic credit. We expect students to work 16 hours per week for a minimum of 10 weeks.
We accept applications from undergraduate students and recent graduates (within one year of graduation). Women, people of color, persons with disabilities, and international students are strongly encouraged to apply.
Only applications submitted via our online student application form will be reviewed.
