Organization     Bard College’s Globalization and International Affairs Program (BGIA) provides a unique opportunity for
Description      university students and recent graduates from around the world to engage in the study and practice of
                 international relations. BGIA blends rigorous coursework in the fields of human rights law, civil society
                 development, political economy, global public health, ethics, and writing on international affairs with
                 professional internships at international organizations in New York City. BGIA is a highly selective program
                 for 28 students each spring and fall semester. In June and July BGIA operates an 8-week summer program for
                 20 students. BGIA’s founding director was James Chace, former managing editor of Foreign Affairs magazine
                 and the World Policy Journal, and a Professor of International Relations at Bard College. Students selected
                 for the program work closely with BGIA staff to identify an internship that matches their academic focus and
                 their professional goals. Students typically intern for up to 25 hours per week in the fall and spring semesters
                 and 40 hours a week in the summer with governmental, nonprofit, media, and corporate entities working in
                 diverse areas of global concern. Students are supervised by a staff mentor at the internship and participate in the
                 Core Seminar, which provides an academic framework to contextualize the professional internship experience.

Organization     Beauvoir is an independent elementary school, serving a co-ed population of 380 students from grades
Description      Pre-Kindergarten through Third. Our campus is located on the picturesque grounds of the Washington National
                 Cathedral in Northwest Washington, D.C.

Positions        ASSOCIATE TEACHER POSITIONS Beauvoir, the National Cathedral Elementary School, an independent
                 co-educational primary school located in Washington D.C., seeks Associate Teachers in Kindergarten through
                 Third Grade for the 2008-2009 academic year. The Associate Teacher Program is a teaching opportunity
                 designed for well-qualified college graduates. Typically joining the faculty for a one to two year appointment as
                 salaried full-time employees, Associate Teachers will be introduced to a program of guided work in the
                 classroom, instructional immersion, professional development, and exposure to the theories and methods of
                 early childhood education. Associate Teachers spend the academic year working closely with a Directing
                 Teacher, through observation, teaching, and planning. Associate Teachers regularly attend meetings of their

                 are appointed. Throughout the year, Associate Teachers participate in seminars and workshops on learning
                 differences, classroom management, child development, and various areas of the curriculum. While working as
                 instructors in the early childhood classroom, Associates learn not only from faculty mentors and opportunities
                 for professional development, but also from self-assessment and evaluation. While engaging in this learning
                 process, the Associate Teacher is expected, nevertheless, to exercise professional judgment and responsibility in
                 keeping with the expectations of the School’s faculty. Beauvoir School does not discriminate on the basis of

                 meetings of their grade level, division, and the faculty as a whole; they also meet with any curriculum

Organization     Greenpeace was founded in 1971 by a small group of activists standing up to nuclear testing off the Alaskan
Description      Coast. These daring few effectively won a total ban on nuclear testing and launched Greenpeace’s legacy of
                 “bearing witness” to environmental abuse. We continue to use non-violent direct action, creative confrontation,
                 and grassroots organizing to build solutions to global warming, toxic pollution, and destruction of our ancient
                 forests and oceans. Today, Greenpeace is the world’s largest environmental organization, with 2.5 million
                 members in 40 countries, and continues to lead the way to a clean and peaceful planet.

Positions        Global Warming Field Organizer Greenpeace, the world’s leading international environmental organization, is
                 seeking passionate organizers who are ready to stop global warming. Scientists say we must act now to stop the
                 worst effects of climate change: more severe hurricanes, heat waves, droughts, floods, and sea level rise. We
                 have the solutions and the technology to solve global warming, but the political will is lacking. Greenpeace’s
                 cutting-edge Project Hot Seat is leading the charge to convince Congress to take significant action to stop global
                 warming. Our field team is mobilizing thousands of citizens to make global warming a key issue in the 2008
                 elections. Greenpeace Field Organizers will make sure that Congress pays attention to the people they represent
                 instead of powerful corporate interests.

 Qualifications Job Scope and Responsibilities: Field Organizers are driven, articulate, strategic, and able to quickly and
                effectively inspire a community to challenge their member of Congress to stop global warming. Each organizer
                will plan and implement a community-based campaign to mobilize the public and work with Congress to make
                global warming a legislative priority. Specific responsibilities include: Recruit and train campaign volunteers
                and key coalition partners; Plan and execute global warming education and outreach events; Generate media
                coverage on the issue of global warming; Build relationships with Congress to ensure long-term action;
                Implement other tactics to pressure congressional targets to become champions; Quickly develop knowledge of
                global warming issues. Skills and accomplishments: Demonstrated leadership experience; Able to inspire a
                diverse group of people; Strong communication skills including public speaking, written and oral; Critical
                thinking and time-management skills; Able to keep a level head in a fast-paced campaign environment;
                Commitment to grassroots organizing as a means of affecting change

                  Mission Statement The Friends Neighborhood (the Guild) was founded in 1879 and is a settlement house and
                  neighborhood center. It exists to serve and respond to the needs of the people in its community, particularly
                  those people who are less able to help themselves. Pursuant to that mission, the Guild provides social serves,
                  seeks to improve the quality of life of its neighbors, and assists in the development of leadership and
                  organization through which community residents may more effectively pursue their common objectives.
                  Underlying the endeavor to accomplish this mission is the recognition that we must continually seek to improve
                  our understanding of the root causes of the problems which we strive to address, and ultimately address these
                  root causes as well as the human needs which result from them. While the mission of the Guild may change
                  over time, as the needs and priorities of its community may change, its underlying premise remains constant:
                  The Guild exists to serve the needs of its entire community, and especially those less able to help themselves.
                  General Programs Currently, the Guild runs an After School Enrichment Program (ASEP) and summer
                  Freedom School program for children. There is also a full-service Neighborhood Energy Center which offers
                  clients assistance with energy bills, rent rebates, and conservation education, as well as a Food Program and a
                  Family Services program which includes truancy counseling and court accompaniment. Adult education is
                  ongoing, as are classes and events through FNG’s Community Learning Center. There is also a vibrant
                  volunteer program.

Positions         The Guild has hosted a Haverford House intern for the past three years. Other internships or positions TBA.

Organization      Founded over 35 years ago, Community Legal Services is one of the nation’s oldest civil legal services
Description       programs, earning a national reputation as one of the most successful in systemic and law reform advocacy.
                  CLS is a large, urban program which offers substantial opportunity for training and professional growth while at
                  the same time sharing in the exciting challenge of delivering high quality legal services to a diverse client
                  population. CLS maintains two offices, a main office in Center City, and a neighborhood office in North
                  Philadelphia, and has 42 attorneys currently on staff. More than half of CLS lawyers possess ten or more years
                  of legal experience. Many are nationally recognized experts in their specialty areas. Each year CLS serves
                  more than 20,000 eligible clients, providing assistance on diverse civil legal problems involving social security,
                  consumer protection, domestic violence, public assistance, landlord-tenant, bankruptcy, child welfare,
                  employment problems, public utility access and rates, medical assistance, veteran’s benefits, health, and civil
                  rights. In addition to providing individual representation, all CLS lawyers are expected to participate in policy
                  advocacy, community education, and impact litigation. Because CLS no longer receives federal funding, the
                  program can engage in advocacy that would otherwise be restricted by Legal Services Corporation regulations.

Positions         Community Legal Services, Inc. of Philadelphia offers an internship program for first- and second-year law
                  students. CLS seeks bright, energetic law students who are committed to, or interested in learning more about,
                  a career in public interest law. Interns will be assigned to a specific CLS unit and, depending on assignment,
                  may have the opportunity to do legal research and writing, client interviewing and counseling, community
                  education, representation at administrative or court hearings, and trial advocacy. In addition, through special
                  programs and training sessions, interns will be exposed to the full range of CLS practice. We particularly
                  invite internship applications from students who are interested in later applying for a post-graduate fellowship.
                  In recent years, CLS has been awarded Skadden, Independence Foundation, and Equal Justice Works
                  fellowships, and the experience gained and contacts made during an internship at CLS can be invaluable in the
                  fellowship application process.

Description       community-based board of directors. We have won numerous local and international awards and citations for
                  innovation and achievement, and earned high marks within the community for serving thousands of
                  low-income, primarily underserved African American dwellers. However, North Philadelphia could well be
                  anywhere around the globe where people suffer due to cultural differences or economic inequities; and that is
                  why our program resonates so strongly worldwide. We foster a new multiculturalism that embraces the gifts
                  and the challenges expressed by all cultures and people. Our programs seek to tap into the common threads of
                  all communities that have been labeled at risk, underprivileged, impoverished, undereducated, and stressed to
                  create anomalies in the same undeniable way that the blues, gospel, jazz and even hip hop have done, with cross
                  cultural success. We know that the Arts transcend race, culture, religion, education, socioeconomic background,
                  gender, sexual orientation, age, or ableism. Our work is described as provocative, muscular and risky. We are
                  not limited by convention but instead boldly redefine art to incorporate environmental justice, greening and
                  beautification, as well as community organizing. Solid is the foundation from which we were originated. Lily
                  Yeh endeavored under difficult situations and limited resources to make work that has forever shifted

                  people of many cultures and communities, and intentionally dismantling racism within LVC, the church, and

Organization      The New England Center for Children is located in Southboro, Massachusetts, 20 minutes west of Boston.
Description       NECC’s primary mission is to increase the skills of individuals with autism through the use of applied behavior
                  analysis (ABA). NECC provides comprehensive educational, residential and clinical services for over 200
                  children, adolescents and young adults. We provide intensive training and all teachers must pass a
                  graduate-level introductory ABA course during their first months of employment. In addition, we are associated
                  with two university master’s degree programs: Simmons College’s masters in severe special needs and
                  Northeastern University’s masters in applied behavior analysis. Each is a 3-year program with courses taught on
                  site and tuition significantly reimbursed by NECC.

Positions         TEACHERS / CHILDCARE PROFESSIONALS All of our teachers, regardless of previous experience,
                  receive extensive training and learn to apply the principles of behavior analysis to teach children, adolescents
                  and young adults to acquire skills and maximize independence in the areas of academics, socialization,
                  self-control of behavior, activities of daily living, communication and employment services. Whether working
                  in the school, the community or the residence, all teachers are trained to competency and are expected to
                  implement the full range of behavioral and educational programs individually designed for each student.
                  LEVEL I TEACHER – This entry-level position for individuals with little or no previous experience working
                  with children with special needs is ideal for those just beginning a career in the field of human services. These
                  teachers work primarily in the residences as they learn to provide instruction to our students in the areas of daily
                  living skills, communication skills, social skills and community living skills. The schedule includes a 4-day
                  work-week with the majority of the hours during the evenings and weekends. Some of the scheduled hours are
                  designated as “sleep hours”. While on “sleep time”, staff are required to remain in the house, but may sleep.
                  This position leads to a Level II teacher position. LEVEL II TEACHERS – This position is typically for
                  individuals who have had some formal experience working with children with special needs. These teachers
                  work both in the school and in our residences with some evening and weekend hours. While all teachers work
                  with all the students on the team, a Level II teacher serves as a case manager for 1 student and is responsible for
                  educational program design, IEP development and regular communication with parents.

 Qualifications    REQUIREMENTS • Applicants must be seeking a full-time position with the flexibility to work evenings and
                  weekends. • Applicants must hold a minimum of a bachelor’s degree and be physically, mentally and
                  emotionally prepared for a challenging career experience. • Applicants must have their own transportation and

                  children or young adults and with experience in or an interest in being trained in the principles of applied
                  behavior analysis.

                 college students and recent graduates for a life of public service. While PolitiCorps is based in Oregon its scope
                 is national; fellows come from every state in the nation and leave PolitiCorps with the skills needed to effect
                 change in their own communities. PolitiCorps fellows learn new ways to think about the world, but
                 PolitiCorps is not just a school of thought. It's a place where Fellows learn by doing, and make a real difference
                 every day. PolitiCorps Summer Institute includes tutorials, trainings, mentorship, and field work that has
                 tangible results: voters registered and educated, communities organized and mobilized, campaigns won and
                 candidates elected.

 Qualifications PolitiCorps Fellows are college seniors or recent graduates who have demonstrated a commitment to
                progressive values and a deep interest in forward-thinking public policy and the political process. PolitiCorps
                Fellows come from every state in the nation, and from a wide variety of experiential and cultural backgrounds.
                Extensive campaign experience is not a prerequisite for PolitiCorps - but an understanding of campaign lifestyle
                (long hours, close friendships, challenging and rewarding projects) does help Fellows make the most of the
                Summer experience. PolitiCorps is deeply committed to providing leadership experience and training to
                students of color.

Organization     Visions in Action is an international non-profit development organization, founded in 1989 and based in
Description      Washington, DC. We are committed to achieving social and economic justice in the developing world through
                 the participation of communities of self-reliant, grassroots volunteers. We are a non-religious and
                 non-political organization that is committed to providing hands on educational experiences where participants
                 assist in making a difference in the developing world. In order to do so, our organization has two approaches
                 towards achieving this goal. The first approach is our Classic Volunteer Program, which sends volunteers to
                 Uganda, Tanzania, South Africa, and Mexico for 6 or 12 month placements. Based on those volunteers’ skills
                 and preferences, Visions in Action will match them with an indigenous NGO in their program country. Our
                 modest program fee covers housing, health insurance, a 2-3 week orientation in-country, staff support in the US
                 and abroad, and visa processing. Our second approach is via our 3 programs in Uganda and Liberia. In
                 Liberia, we currently have a program in conjunction with the US Department of Agriculture called Food for
                 Progress. In Uganda, our Education Support Project, funded by UNICEF, has been designed to build 5 primary
                 schools and 5 teacher housing units to assist internally displaced persons (IDPs) who are returning to their
                 communities. Our second project in Uganda is in conjunction with the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS
                 Relief (PEPFAR), and provides local Ugandans with free HIV testing and counseling. In order to facilitate this
                 program, we are now recruiting volunteers for our Supported Volunteer Program. Supported Volunteers must
                 go through a rigorous application process and some positions may require an applicant to be a certified VCT
                 Counselor. Unlike the Classic Volunteer Program, Supported Volunteers are not responsible for paying a
                 program fee and will receive a $200-$300 stipend each month from VIA. Their housing and health insurance
                 will be taken care of, and their only financial obligation is to cover their round-trip airfare to and from Uganda.

Organization      WorldTeach is a non-profit, non-governmental organization that provides opportunities for individuals to make
Description       a meaningful contribution to international education by living and working as volunteer teachers in developing
                  countries. WorldTeach was founded by a group of Harvard students in 1986, in response to the need for
                  educational assistance in developing countries. It also addressed a growing interest among people in the U.S.
                  and elsewhere to serve, teach and learn as volunteers overseas. Since its inception, WorldTeach has placed
                  thousands of volunteer educators in communities throughout Asia, Latin America, Africa, Eastern Europe and
                  the Pacific. Based at the Center for International Development at Harvard University, WorldTeach offers the
                  benefits of a well-established volunteer organization, while also providing more comprehensive, personalized
                  support and training as a small NGO. In each of our programs, volunteers are placed in schools and host
                  communities in developing countries that specifically request WorldTeach volunteers and would otherwise be
                  unable to afford or locate qualified teachers. Volunteers receive training, language preparation, and field
                  support, empowering them to make an impact that will last long after they leave. We invite you to join the
                  growing community of volunteers by becoming a WorldTeach teacher!

Positions         International Volunteer.
