Fall Internship

Their Story is Our Story 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 with an opportunity to:
- be in close proximity to new ideas;
- receive mentorship in project management, writing, editing, and story-production, as well as in transcribing and translating interviews;
- work with a suite of professional software;
- foster friendships and employment networking opportunities.

TSOS is excited to open the call for the Fall 2022 internship cohort applications!

We hope to see you there!
