Learning Life is a Washington DC-based nonprofit lab devoted to innovating education and citizen engagement. Our flagship program, the Family Diplomacy Initiative (learninglife.info/fdi) connects families online across borders to nurture mutual understanding in our divided world. Our International Mentoring Program (learninglife.info/mentor) connects caring U.S.-based mentors with kids in Washington DC and abroad to help open the world to children from lower-income families. Our Democracy Dinners (learninglife.info/democracydinners) bring together metro DC academics, professionals and activists across their specialty silos to talk about democracy's local to global challenges and opportunities amidst authoritarian resurgence.
We take on graduate and undergraduate interns in the fall, spring and summer. Students can intern online from anywhere in the USA. Depending on each student’s interests and skills plus our organizational needs, interns assist with a variety of tasks including research and writing; local to global outreach via social media, email and phone; document translation and/or live language interpreting; website and design; photo and video recording and/or editing; fundraising and more.
