About Fourth World Movement

Fourth World Movement seeks to combat injustice and unequal treatment toward those living in poverty. Through the organization, volunteers and those living in poverty work together to give a voice to the impoverished. Using conferences, events, panel discussions, rallies, and seminars, Fourth World Movement offers a forum for those living in poverty and an opportunity for broader discussion and awareness. In addition, the organization engages in research; hosts "street libraries" which offer underserved communities books, computer access, and art; provides development activities for children; and runs workshops.

Fourth World interns work directly with local teams, gaining first-hand experience of the organization's mission. They perform both administrative duties in the office and work directly with people living in poverty, including reading to children at "Street Libraries" and engaging in dialogues at "People's Universities." At the conclusion of the program, interns may have an opportunity to remain with the organization as Volunteer Corps members.


Open to individuals age 19 or older with at least a high school diploma or GED. Applicants must have at least one year of work experience or college education. Non-US citizens are eligible.
