The KFF Human Rights Internship is designed to provide a unique educational and professional development opportunity to those early in their career to explore the intersectionality of issues experienced by the most vulnerable among us – disparities in health and healing, safety and justice, and economic opportunity – and to create their own experience of growth in collaboration with Heartland Alliance across a rich landscape of professional offerings
This internship gives the candidate the flexibility to choose from a range of interest areas to build expertise and knowledge. All opportunities provide for experiential learning with access to thought leaders, practitioners, researchers, and individuals who have moved out of homelessness, addiction, violence and abuse to live fuller lives and to contribute to change that helps others living in precarious and vulnerable situations.
The internship will last 10 weeks. The intern will receive $14/hr. based on a 40 hour work week. That does not include travel, housing, or other expenses.
