As we grow up and start looking for internships that will give us our first taste of the real world, we often fail to realize how easy we’ve had it. Although good grades and getting into college are important, almost all college students who are now looking for internships never had to worry about survival. It was a given. I’m sure that there are some of you reading who had very different experiences, but for most of you one of the biggest life “problems” is figuring out what you’ll do after you graduate. It’s easy to forget that there are millions of children in the world who live each day trying to survive. Save the Children is an international non-profit organization that focuses almost entirely on making the lives of children across the world better. They do so with a focus on 7 main areas: Economic Opportunities, Education, Emergencies, Protection, Health, Hunger and Malnutrition, and U.S. Literacy and Nutrition. Save the Children has spent the last 70 years fighting poverty’s effects on children through their unique self-help approach, and they’re not stopping any time soon.

Find an Internship, Save the Children

As you take the first step in figuring out what you’ll do with your life – getting an internship, you have a chance to do some serious good at the same time. An internship with Save the Children offers the opportunity to help others while you help yourself. They only have one internship opportunity right now, but there are certain to be more in the future. They need an intern for their Survive to 5 Program. It’s a depressing name (nobody likes to think that surviving to the age of 5 is difficult), but it’s a really important program. Save the Children is looking for someone who knows his or her way around the office and is very familiar with the Internet. There will be a lot of research work along with other tasks to support the project’s staff. You can apply by sending a cover letter and resume to cgrasso@savechildren.org. This internship is unpaid and located in Wesport, CT (the town in which I went to high school). If you’re interested in future internships with Save the Children, keep an eye on their Jobs and Internships postings.
