About Global Ties U.S.
Global Ties U.S. powers individuals, communities, and nations to build trust and advance peace and prosperity through international exchange. Through our Network of citizen ambassadors – the country’s most established and largest – we connect nearly 100 communities across the United States to the world through international exchange. Each year, through the flagship International Visitor Leadership Program and other exchange and public diplomacy programs, our local members welcome thousands of international leaders in civil society, government, and the private sector into their communities, building alliances to tackle our toughest transnational challenges and enriching U.S. communities, both socially and economically.
The Public Diplomacy and Exchange intern primarily supports the Exchanges team in our development and implementation of international exchange programs, works with a cross-section of staff teams, and may work on multiple tasks/projects simultaneously. Tasks may include, but are not limited to: updating databases, federal grants-related research and writing, and providing wide-ranging support for exchange programs. The intern will provide logistic and administrative support for virtual exchanges and help the team prepare for the return of in-person exchanges in 2022.
This is not a public policy, foreign policy, or research position. Students at accredited U.S. colleges or universities who are interested in international exchanges, public diplomacy, development, and international education are encouraged to apply. For more information, please visit our website at GlobalTiesUS.org.
