Together, we advocate for more just societies in the Americas.


Communications Intern

June 2019 - August 2019 Washington, DC
“WOLA's work environment is absolutely encouraging and supportive. They strive to create a program where we receive as much as we are giving them, offering their interns development opportunities, the chance to attend talks and discussions with civil leaders and policy-makers, weekly inspirational lunches with key figures in the field, and the opportunity to take up your own projects. Interning at WOLA was a very well-structured experience that gave me a network of policy experts that I still regularly make use of. They also provided us with a travel stipend and multiple forms of support, despite the internship being unpaid.”


May 2020 - August 2020 Washington, DC
