Internships in Antiwar and Social Justice Organizing


 The Syracuse Peace Council (SPC) is seeking interns who are enthusiastic and passionate about working to create a world of peace, freedom, equality, and social justice and who are motivated to take action to end military aggression, imperialism, and all forms of oppression. By interning at our office, you'll have the opportunity to learn about important issues of the day as well as the basics of grassroots organizing from outreach to publicity to fundraising. 

Interns at the Peace Council need to be self-starters, comfortable operating in a grassroots environment.  Interns work alongside SPC staff and non-staff activists/organizers to offer support and leadership in our organizing work.  Applicants seeking college internship credit should consult their institution for guidlelines.

 Supervision & Evaluation - Interns are supervised by the Peace Council staff person relating to their area of work. Evaluation of interns will be based on their level of responsibility in following through effectively on tasks, their ability to work cooperatively with others and where applicable, their role in the success of projects.  

Time - Start dates, end date, and hours are flexible.  Hours are mainly daytime, with some evenings and/or weekends depending on the scheduling of events.
