Interested in interning at CCIG?

Organizations, representatives and topics I had only known from my studies became part of my daily work, which gave me incredible perspective on not only NGOs, but the UN system as a functioning, living institution. The communication, writing and interpersonal skills I gained during my internship continue to serve me well in positions I've held in various industries internationally.

– Mary Guinn, CCIG Intern 2013-14

The most enjoyable part of my internship was attending side events I helped set up and organize (...) I enjoyed seeing how my work would be used directly. (...) I learned a great deal about NGOs and Civil Society while at CCIG as well as how the UN system worked in general.

– Nicole Peer, CCIG Intern 2015-16
