ONE is a global non-profit organization focused on raising public awareness about the issues of global poverty, hunger, disease and efforts to fight such problems in the world’s poorest countries.
In addition to our office-based internships, ONE offers on-campus, field-organizing internships for current college students during the fall and spring semesters. The internship is run through our ONE Campus program and is designed to give strong student leaders and advocates the opportunity to recruit, support, and manage a team of peers in structured and creative advocacy campaigns that engage students on campus in the fight against extreme poverty and disease.
This field-organizing internship with ONE requires students to lead their school’s ONE Chapter, participate in the ONE Campus Challenge, and complete a curriculum to supplement your leadership, field organizing, and policy engagement with ONE on your campus. In this hands-on environment, interns will be exposed to multiple facets of ONE by providing field support for ONE’s grassroots mobilizing, experience with direct and indirect lobbying, managing digital campaigning, and assisting with local media and communication efforts. Check out the curriculum and requirements for internship credit here.
Interns are expected to work 10-15 hours per week organizing with ONE on their campus. Students can receive academic credit consistent with their college or university’s guidelines.
Qualifications: To be eligible for this campus-based internship with ONE, candidates must be current undergraduate or graduate level students in the U.S.
