INTERNACTION AT A GLANCE
INTERNaction is an initiative creating a bridge between university students and human rights NGOs worldwide. We aim at mitigating the shortage of human rights internships and simultaneously providing exposure to local NGOs. We match personalities of students with profiles of NGOs, to ensure an enriching experience for both.

A BIT ABOUT OUR STORY
INTERNaction is a team of twelve members coming from twelve different cultural and interdisciplinary backgrounds. We, first-handedly, experienced the frustration of not finding valuable internships because of lack of contacts. After few months of thorough research, we have noticed how many NGOs are contributing locally with such great work, yet lacking voice in terms of media coverage and international setting.
INTERNaction is now working with organizations, university professors and internship offices worldwide, making the process easier, more secure and rewarding. Our position has a twofold advantage: on the one hand, we do understand and share the needs of students. On the other hand, the collaboration with university staff and NGOs representatives makes it easier to bridge the gap between students and NGOs.
