College Internships

The success of World Without Genocide depends on our employees, interns, and volunteers. It is through the volunteer efforts of ordinary people that we are able to make a difference on so many issues affecting human rights on a local and a global scale.

We welcome your involvement as a volunteer. Currently, we are looking for volunteers to provide support for ongoing events, advocacy, and for the Tents of Witness exhibit. The exhibit is composed of ten tents; each one tells the story of a different group targeted for genocide. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact admin@worldwithoutgenocide.org.
