Internships & Volunteering

· Internship Opportunities:

General: PASSIA Interns are provided with an opportunity to gain practical experience by working on the ground with a Palestinian organization. PASSIA Internships are usually fulltime, last for a minimum of two months, and are largely voluntary.

Requirements: Familiarity with the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is essential. PASSIA’s working languages are Arabic and English; applicants must be fluent in written and spoken English (with knowledge of Arabic being helpful, but not required). Computer literacy and familiarity with word-processing programs is essential.

Tasks: PASSIA principally recruits interns to work and assist in the following main areas:

  1. Research – Assisting with existing research projects, e.g. by collecting documents, searching for other background material, or conducting own research on a specific topic. Opportunities for research will depend upon the projects that PASSIA is engaged with at a specific time.
  2. Editing/Proofreading – Editing documents that have been translated into English, or written by non-native English speakers, in preparation for publication (e.g. articles for newspapers, papers for PASSIA publications).
  3. Administrative – Basic office duties including dealing with correspondence, taking minutes at meetings and so forth.

Interns may be required to assist with other duties not listed here if necessary

PASSIA internships usually last a minimum of three months and are unpaid.

· Volunteers:

PASSIA is also open for applications from Palestinian and foreign volunteers, who would like to assist us in various administrative, research and (web) design tasks and thereby gain not only knowledge about Palestinian issues but also valuable work experience.

 

Application:

Interested candidates for the internship or volunteer program are kindly asked to send an email indicating their interest as well as the dates of the envisaged internship and enclosing their current CV.
