Non-Profit Administration Internship

Corporate Accountability stops transnational corporations from devastating democracy, trampling human rights, and destroying our planet. We are building a world rooted in justice where corporations answer to people, not the other way around -- a world where every person has access to clean water, healthy food, a safe place to live, and the opportunity to reach their full human potential.

As a Corporate Accountability 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 40 years, we have successfully challenged corporations like Nestlé, Exxon, and McDonald’s, securing lifesaving victories in the face of tremendous power, money, and influence. 

We are deeply committed to prioritizing the leadership of those who bear the brunt of corporate abuse: women, people of color, low-income people, people in the Global South, and LGBTQ folks around the world. As such, these people are strongly encouraged to apply for our internships program.

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 you want to see in their local communities or schools.  

As the Non-Profit Administrative Intern you will play a unique role in the organization by supporting projects such as implementation of an outreach program to identify and hire top-notch candidates for entry-level to senior staff  positions, developing posting strategies for our internships and, coordinating intern and staff recruitment outreach for the next intern class.  This internship is an excellent introduction to non-profit administration.
