ABOUT LEARNING LIFE & OUR CITIZEN DIPLOMACY INITIATIVE
Learning Life is an educational nonprofit in Washington D.C. that spreads learning in everyday life beyond school walls. Learning Life’s flagship program, the Citizen Diplomacy Initiative (CDI), engages lower-income American families, starting in Washington D.C.’s Ward 8, in live internet dialogues and project collaborations with lower-income families in other nations, including El Salvador, Senegal and Jordan. CDI aims to democratize diplomacy, and nurture more caring, capable global citizens.
ABOUT THE INTERNSHIP
Learning Life is now accepting resumes from interested metro D.C. graduate and undergraduate students interested in interning with our Citizen Diplomacy Initiative in Washington D.C. Depending on each student’s interests and skills plus our organizational needs, interns assist with a variety of tasks including outreach to find families, volunteers and partners locally and abroad, implementation of live international dialogues and local learning activities on health, community and world affairs; research and writing; photo and video; fundraising; document translation, and/or live language interpreting.
Interns must be able to commit 8-10 hours per week, consisting of a 3-4 hour event on Saturday or Sunday in DC with our participating children and families (e.g., family learning meetings, international dialogues, potlucks, field trips, learning games) and a 4-5 hour work meeting in DC with fellow interns and Learning Life’s Director, [learninglife.info/paullachelier]Paul Lachelier.
This opportunity is unpaid, but offers substantive, resume-building experience on an innovative international initiative, and a formal reference and/or recommendation letter upon request given satisfactory performance.

Applicants should also be outgoing, organized, detail-oriented, motivated and punctual. Native or fluent speakers of Arabic, Spanish or French are encouraged to apply.
