intern helping refugees

Interns are an invaluable part of the NICE workforce.

We are currently accepting applications for Fall 2014. Start/end dates are flexible and based on the responsibilities and needs of each position. Generally, Fall internships begin in the second week of August and last until the second week of December. While all intern and volunteer positions are unpaid, the program is competitive, and you are encouraged to approach it in the same way you would a job.
