Global Justice Summer Interns

 

The UUCSJ Global Justice Summer Internship program is so much more than just a regular internship opportunity: it’s an apprenticeship; a time to learn, grow, and be open to changing various parts of oneself. It’s a chance to raise one’s awareness of how oppression and human rights issues manifest in people’s lives; an opportunity to be exposed to dimensions and aspects of society that may not be part of one’s primary community; and lastly, a first-hand look at vocations and careers in social justice.

To date, UUCSJ has placed over 60 interns at dozens of justice and grassroots organizations around the world. Check them out below!
