Would you like to contribute to the development of talent for international peace, justice and humanitarian action?
Would you like to support the development of The Hague as a centre which offers opportunities for building the work skills and/or applied research capacity of students in the fields of humanitarian aid and international peace and justice?
In partnership with the founder of this idea, Tobias Schmitz from GIWEH, we are exploring the idea of creating an “internship helpdesk”; a mechanism for interns that will match the needs of knowledge institutions and Humanity Hub members. The helpdesk would help to optimise opportunities for employers to access research or practical support from students. Knowledge institutions gain access to a large network where students can learn work skills, gain work experience and practical experience in the workforce to enhance their skills and network.
We’ll be hosting an exploratory conversation to develop a coalition of parties who could take this idea to the next step. Our hope is that the internship helpdesk will optimise the experience of interns, as well as the NGOs and organisation that host them.
