Interns CAMPaign at the Secretariat

Posted on

In reference to the stories of Robert and David, interns CAMPaigned at the UN today to raise awareness of the fact that the UN should change its internship policies in order to make them of higher quality, provide more security for interns, and to make them more accessible to qualified youth from all socio-economic backgrounds.

FII New York campaigned in front of the secretariat with backpacks and camping gear and made use of “elevator pitch ambassadors” in the UN elevators, to familiarize UN staff with the issue.

“It’s not for us. It’s for those who couldn’t afford it!”
