Internships

TSOS Internships provide an opportunity to facilitate integration within educational communities and allow both refugees and non-refugees the opportunity to receive technical and professional training.

Working within diverse and integrated teams, interns are provided: an opportunity to be in close proximity to new ideas; mentorship in project management, writing, editing, and story-production; real-world training in and exposure to a suite of professional software; the possibility to foster friendships; and employment networking opportunities.

All interns interact with content from and create products for the Global Refugee Archive. This creates a unique academic opportunity to be part of building a repository of refugee stories. Those stories become a foundation of future research and understanding of global crises and how to best prevent and aid in global refugee issues.

We plan to welcome 12 paid interns in Fall 2021 to our Archive & Story Production teams. Further information will be released in August. Stay tuned to our social media channels for announcements. Please consider a donation to help us launch the next cohort!

"I think the goal of the organization is what drove most of us to work in the program. For me what was very amazing was the authentic way we made our videos and how TSOS shared these stories. I made some incredible memories with my team. I am very proud of the way we collaborated on every project." -Summer 2020 Intern
