Careers & Internships

The Global Lives Project is currently hiring graduate students, exceptional undergraduates or recent graduates in 2017-18 for volunteer internships and careers.

Our internships offer a unique opportunity to learn from a diverse community of professionals from around the world working in a variety of disciplines. We have produced and shown our video work in more than a dozen countries and are growing quickly, and every internship opportunity will give interns the satisfaction of seeing their work have a major impact on a rapidly growing organization.

Volunteers welcome for the following (email info@globallives.org):
