The Global Fund for Children (GFC) envisions a world where children grow up to be productive, caring citizens of our global society. GFC advances the education and dignity of young people around the world through its grantmaking program, which funds community-based organizations. Our grantmaking falls into four thematic areas: Education; Gender Equity; Freedom from Violence and Exploitation; and Youth Empowerment. We support partners in all regions of the world. Beyond providing financial support, GFC promote sharing of knowledge and development of networks.

We are seeking a summer intern to provide a range of programmatic and project focused support to the programs team. The summer internship is an excellent opportunity to gain experience in the areas of international development, philanthropy, global children and youth issues, and the day-to-day operations of a grassroots grantmaker. Interns play a significant role in the success of GFC, therefore we strive to offer a rewarding learning and engagement experience.

Interns will work on research or analytical projects in collaboration with the Grantmaking team. Activities envisioned for the summer of 2020 include analysis of grantee progress reports and research of trends, partners, and opportunities to help inform regional and country investment strategies. Additional projects will be developed in collaboration with interns and grantmaking team.

Passion and interest in international issues, particularly those involving children and youth will be helpful. Experience and interest in data analysis and organization of information will be an asset. Additionally, strong research and writing ability, knowledge of basic computer applications (Word, PowerPoint, Excel) are useful. We use the Microedge GIFTS grant management system as our primary source for tracking and managing grants. Successful interns will have initiative, solid attention to detail, and enjoy working with a team as well as independently. French and/or Spanish language skills will be especially appreciated.

40 hours a week during regular business hours, Monday-Friday (9:00 AM to 5:00 PM).

LOCATION: Washington, DC (possibility of a remote, virtual internship may be considered depending on public health guidelines at the start of the internship)
