Internships

Interning at IJM is more than a day job. It’s a unique opportunity for graduates and young professionals to develop skills, be challenged and contribute to the work of ending everyday violence in a practical way. At IJM, interns are an essential part of the team and play a vital role in helping to expand the mission.
