The Human Rights Foundation (HRF) is seeking highly-qualified applicants for the position of College Freedom Forum Intern.

Overview of the Human Rights Foundation

HRF is a nonpartisan nonprofit organization that promotes and protects human rights globally, with a focus on closed societies. Our work includes effective campaigns to free political prisoners, world-class events such as the Oslo Freedom Forum, and programs such as Flash Drives for Freedom that publicize human rights violators and directly support dissidents and human rights defenders at risk. 

Internship Details

Candidates are expected to dedicate a significant portion of their hours on-site in the HRF office located in the Empire State Building. This requirement will be assessed on an individual basis to determine a realistic schedule that fits the needs of both HRF and the College Freedom Forum Intern. This internship will be active until April 1, 2018 unless otherwise determined by both parties.


The College Freedom Forum Intern will work closely with the Director of the College Freedom Forum (CFF) on event coordination related to upcoming CFF events. Main tasks will include conference logistics, assisting with coordination/tracking of vendor relations, and researching colleges and university groups for potential partnerships. There will also be administrative tasks related to the CFF events.


The ideal candidate is a detail-oriented, organized self-starter with the capacity to work well under pressure. Candidates should be passionate about human rights education and understand the importance of educating young people about the state of human rights globally. An ability to have fun while getting the job done is a must. A background in editing, relationship management, and project management is a plus, as is fluency in Spanish.


Travel to CFF events may be requested, but is not a guaranteed part of this position.


We are looking to fill a full-time internship, but if you are a great fit and can only do part-time work, you will be considered.
