International Planned Parenthood is concerned with women’s health and teaching safe sex. The organization also spends a good deal of time fighting for AIDS research. International Planned Parenthood was founded in 1952 in Mumbai, India, as a joint effort between India, Germany, Hong Kong, The Netherlands, Singapore, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States.
Interns work on all aspects of the organization’s public relations efforts, such as press releases and its websites (plannedparenthood.org is the master site, and is constantly updated). Positions in international locations may be available, as International Planned Parenthood continues to extend its reach.
Open to current college students, recent graduates and grad students. Applicants with a major and strong background in politics and/or humanities (especially English literature, philosophy, political science or a related field) have an edge. Administrative or other office experience is helpful but not required. Writing ability is essential.
