Future Internship Openings: Students wanting to intern at Partition Center must first clarify with their department and academic advisor that, given a student’s course load and prospective internship requirements, earning a position as an Intern could be a means to fulfilling the requirements to gain course credit.
Then they should write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org to establish the development of an internship program.
Volunteering: There were/are others – students and non-student citizens – who have volunteered with ISPaD for hours to days and weeks. They have volunteered for our Partition Studies Conferences, and persistently for organizing forums, distributing newsletters, interviewing refugees, preparing food for meetings and conferences to hosting out-of-town guests.
