The International Center for Human Development regularly seeks interns to assist staff with ongoing projects in its office in Yerevan. ICHD’s Internship Program offers career-related work experience to students and other individuals interested in volunteering. Internships are set up on quarterly or a semester basis, but may be extended. Interns do not receive a fixed stipend. Upon successful completion of the internship, ICHD will provide interns with a certificate of appreciation and reference letter upon request.
The Center currently focuses on several major initiatives:
The Center also prepares a major annual conference on Armenia’s pace of the European Integration, with particular emphasis on approximation of the national regulations with the European Acquis. This gathering of high-ranking Armenian and European government and civil society leaders also explores best practices on a wide range of issues. Topics include economic and political reform, education and healthcare reform and foreign policy.
Our projects engage high-level policy makers, opinion leaders and innovative stakeholders in the public and private sectors. Our internship program provides interns with professional experience required by most employers and an opportunity to do substantive work including research and writing, representation at conferences, and participation in project events. The program also assists interns in the development of key skills that are valuable for their future careers. Our interns are also expected to contribute to administrative work and event support whenever needed. Interns are assigned to one or more project teams or work directly with our leading research analysts, trainers and advocacy specialists in each of our units through a fast-streaming cycle. The internship program encourages mentorship and direct engagement with team leaders. We support a hands-on approach that fully subsumes interns into the office team and encourages their creative ideas and contributions.
