  • Possible experience managing other interns
  • Experience of bringing global awareness to Seattle youth

Time Commitment

We are looking for someone who can dedicate 15-20 hours a week of their time for the duration of the 2013-14 school year. We can be flexible on this time commitment, but prefer the above.
