Campaign Organizing Internship

As a Corporate Accountability International intern, you will be a part of making change with a powerhouse, member-supported organization, protecting human rights, public health, and the environment from corporate abuse around the world. For 39 years, we have successfully challenged corporations like Nestlé, Exxon, and McDonald’s, securing lifesaving victories in the face of tremendous power, money, and influence. Our campaigns are advancing the human right to water; challenging the fast food industry’s role in the breakdown of our food system; ensuring big polluters are kicked out of international climate negotiations; and standing up to Big Tobacco to secure public health policies across the world.

Our internships are a unique opportunity for you to gain valuable campaigning and nonprofit experience, cultivate your interests in social justice, strengthen your understanding of a fast-paced campaign organization, and gain critical skills and experience. In the campaigns internship, you will intern alongside our dynamic, passionate campaigns team and learn skills such as action planning, power mapping, campaign research, media outreach, and fundraising. Interns will come away from the experience ready to apply these skills to the social change they want to see in their local communities or schools.
