Internships and scholarships


We rely on the great work of interns and volunteers. Being part of the Foundation’s team as a volunteer or intern is a great way to develop your skills and expertise and be a part of a tight-knit community passionate about peace and justice.

We are currently recruiting for a number of volunteer opportunities / internships. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, please apply as soon as possible. If you feel your skill-set spans elements of different positions please do not hesitate to get in touch, we would love to hear from you!

We are of course happy to honour and sign off on any accreditation/study requirements as well as provide a letter of recommendation and make ourselves available for reference phone calls.

If you are interested please email your CV to, along with a cover letter expressing your interest and availability.
