Gandhi Center for Global Nonviolence welcomes internship applications
The Mahatma Gandhi Center for Global Nonviolence at JMU is seeking rising Juniors and Seniors (exceptional rising sophomores may be considered) with strong leadership and academic backgrounds who want to be part of an organization affecting change at the local, regional, and national levels by advancing the understanding of, appreciation for, and practice of nonviolence.
Ideal candidates will have a minimum GPA of 3.0 and experience, interest, and education related to the Gandhi Center’s mission. Successful candidates who have not taken “Gandhi, Nonviolence and Global Transformation” [GHUM 252] will be required to read Gandhi: An Autobiography prior to beginning the internship.
A practical internship, many interns take leadership in implementing a range of projects in the JMU and Harrisonburg communities as well as the wider academic communities of nonviolence scholars.
The Gandhi Center appreciates the opportunity to provide an internship program that can encourage positive character building, self-realization, and leadership skills development. To that end, promising students who do not meet the academic requirement or who do not have significant related experience may apply with an additional letter of recommendation from a supporting faculty member.
