Facing History and Ourselves offers summer internships for rising juniors and seniors in college. We begin taking applications in February for the 8 week program which begins in June. These internships are an exciting opportunity to work inside a fast-paced, non profit organization.

The number of internships offered, the length (part time to full time), and specific assignments will vary depending on organizational needs. While the internships are unpaid, strong learning opportunities are provided that expose participants to Facing History content and teaching approach.

Internship opportunities will be listed on our Open Positions page when they are available.

Our Mission

Facing History and Ourselves is an international educational and professional development organization whose mission is to engage students of diverse backgrounds in an examination of racism, prejudice, and antisemitism in order to promote the development of a more humane and informed citizenry.

By studying the historical development of the Holocaust and other examples of genocide, students make the essential connection between history and the moral choices they confront in their own lives.

Our Values: Equal Opportunity and Diversity

Facing History and Ourselves is an equal opportunity employer. Respecting individual differences is an integral part of our culture. We aspire to be a diverse and inclusive organization that reflects the core values expressed in our mission.

Our workplace is characterized by a commitment to mission, eagerness for learning, and passion for the work. We strive to create a community where staff are accountable to goals, open to feedback and ideas, follow through on commitments, have high standards, and relate to others in a collaborative fashion that engenders mutual respect.
