Join us Spring 2018 as a Global Education / Curriculum Intern

AMP Global Youth was founded by students eager to take action around global issues. Through training programs and campaigns, we amplify the voice and power of global youth. Students lead much of our work, and we’re looking for the best and brightest in 2018! Is that you? Read on!

The Global Education / Curriculum Intern provides essential support to AMP training programs, in particular Global Scholar and Global Leader. The Intern will help refine existing content around topics like leadership and team building, and research / draft new content on new elements we’re launching in 2018. This is a great opportunity for someone with an interest in social change and education.

Responsibilities include:

  1. CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT: Help expand existing curriculum components and build new lessons. This might involve researching / drafting new training activities, group projects, or readings. We prioritize learning through activities like simulations and group work, and Intern will be asked to think creatively about methods to helping participants understand concepts and retain information.  
  2. RESEARCH: The Intern will also help research thinking and approaches around new curriculum components, for example on topics like cultivating empathy.  This will involve scanning periodicals, journals, media and other sources for interesting content and approaches, under the guidance of program staff.
  3. TRAINING PROGRAM SUPPORT: Intern will support testing and refinement of new curriculum components, which this spring will in part through our virtual Helping us pull off great on-the-ground and virtual training events, including Global Scholar and other training workshops.

AMP Interns are confident communicators; enthusiastic about leadership development, social change, and advocacy; passionate about global issues facing our generation; and dedicated to collaboration with fellow team-members. Successful applicant is a strong writer, and comfortable with finding and summarizing content and texts. We can / will teach applicant how to use these tools. We are a virtual organization, so interns must be self-starters and reliable too.

Benefits of working with AMP:

All team members receive ongoing training and support. We are a hands-on network: team members build real, marketable skills (no photocopying here!). They also benefit from working with an inspired community of young global leaders committed to securing youth engagement around global challenges.

Interns work 8 hours/week for a minimum of 12 weeks beginning in January 2018. We are a virtual community, so intern will work virtually using their own computer. Interns are required to join weekly team calls, at times agreed upon by the entire team early in the semester.
