Wanted: Grads/Undergrads Seeking to Change the World (or at least one life) during a Summer Internship

Cure Violence, ranked 17th in the Top 500 NGOs in the world by Global_Geneva in 2015, is looking for smart, socially-conscious, globally-focused millennials with excellent research and writing skills for unpaid summer internships in 2015. Internship opportunities available in communications (social media, website development/management, videography, writing blog posts, event planning) and research and policy. Positions available in Chicago, Washington, D.C. and New York City.

At Cure Violence, we imagine a world without violence and work to make that dream a reality each and every day. The Cure Violence health approach involves the most cutting-edge research in behavioral science and neuroscience, combined with the revolutionary step of applying epidemic control techniques to successfully and dramatically reduce violence.

Violence is arguably the most important issue facing the world. It is responsible for the death of millions of people as well as destabilizing communities and squandering investments. Successfully treating the contagion of violence is critical and necessary as a precursor to truly solving other social problems including inequality, poverty, educational access and economic development.

Cure Violence is at the forefront and building a network of globally and socially conscious partners who are redefining the field of violence prevention through a health perspective that includes identifying and interrupting violence, working to change individual behavior and affecting community norm changes.

Currently, the Cure Violence model is deployed in 50+ communities in 25 U.S. cities and eight countries. Violence is contagious. Be Part of the Cure!

For consideration for an unpaid internship opportunity during Summer 2015 with Cure Violence, please send your resume and cover letter to Kathy Buettner, Director of Communications at kab@uic.edu by May 1, 2015.
