Comments from past interns:
"My internship at The Peace Foundation was a great and valuable experience, where I learned a lot both at a personal and professional level. First I discovered different aspects of an NGO and the way it works in general. There I enjoyed working in a good atmosphere with a real team spirit, which helped me to feel like a member of the team, doing a useful job. Then, my internship taught me how to organise some events and to communicate on it, but I especially learned a lot on peace issues, confict resolution and mediation skills. Thanks to The Peace Foundation, I also met a lot of interesting people and attended some important events, and that was a huge benefit, as my whole experience in this organisation." - Constance Gilbert, Bachelor of Political Science, Institute of Sciences Po Tolouse, France.
"I sought after an internship with The Peace Foundation as their principles align with my own and being able to work with an organisation who educates schools and communities about the importance of peace and conflict resolution allows me to gain knowledge and experience in a field I hope to work in one day. My future aspiration is to one-day work with the UN, as I see their organisation as the foundation of peace. During my time as an intern at The Peace Foundation I had the opportunity to experience the vast programmes and events that are organised and from those experiences I had gained a lot of respect and admiration for the work and dedication that goes on behind the scenes by this organisation and it's staff. Being in a positive and helpful environment not only made my time as an intern enjoyable, it also gave me the chance to see how important conflict resolution skills are in society. Thank you for the opportunity to be an intern at your wonderful organisation." - Ariana Kingi, Bachelors in Criminology and Conflict Resolution, AUT University.
