A message from the Jerusalem Fund:
I would like to draw your attention to our summer internship program in D.C. which your students may be interested in applying for.
I have enclosed a flier about the internship program to distribute among your students. If there is another person I should be contacting, please let me know and I will make sure to send them the information. Also, for more detailed information about the internship program, please visit http://www.thejerusalemfund.org/internships.
For those who may not know who were are, The Jerusalem Fund is an independent, non-profit, non-political, non-sectarian organization based in Washington, D.C. The Jerusalem Fund has three programs: The Gallery, The Humanitarian Link and the Palestine Center. In particular, the Palestine Center is the educational program of The Jerusalem Fund that educates the American public about Palestine through briefings, lecture series, conferences, analysis of current events and in-depth publications.
The Palestine Center internship program provides undergraduate students with an opportunity to conduct primary-source research, develop writing and organizational skills, build valuable D.C. contacts, gain hands-on experience and observe the extensive political and policy-related happenings in the metropolitan D.C. area. As important members of our team, interns gain valuable exposure to the functions of a highly productive non-profit organization working on issues of national and international significance.
Undergraduate summer interns coordinate a summer lecture series, write an in-depth information brief on a topic related to the Palestine issue and assist with Palestine Center briefings, film screenings and symposia. They are also called upon to assist periodically with staffing events. All interns are encouraged to attend relevant events in the area during their internship and to pursue avenues of research that are of personal interest to them, provided the research relates to the work of the Center. The Palestine Center staff provides guidance on research and logistics, helps to educate interns on the Palestinian issue and advises them as needed on career development.
For more information about The Jerusalem Fund or its educational program, the Palestine Center, please visit us at www.thejerusalemfund.org. And please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thanks in advance for your help in spreading the word!
