Interns and Associates

NGO Sustainability, Inc. offers opportunities for interns and associates who want to be involved in global sustainable development, renewable energy, and women’s empowerment issues.

Experience, Connections, Learning

Throughout the course of the year, selective groups of  bright, hard working college and graduate students volunteer their time to NGO Sustainability.  They help running every aspect of the organization, from drafting reports on UN events to aiding meetings of our staff with top businesspeople and ambassadors in the world of sustainable development.

Interns and associates get intensive experience with the United Nations.  They organize events and often attend relevant UN sessions with Roma Stibravy, President and Founder of NGO Sustainability, Inc.

Their work helps build connections while raising awareness and promoting sustainability. Their contributions are critical to meeting mission and using resources for direct service.

What Others Say About The Experience

Board meetings and events at the United Nations allow me to meet with, discuss and learn from experts in all fields, including but not limited to the United Nations and private energy investment companies. My interest in sustainability–particularly renewable energy–increased significantly by interning.Through our work consulting other NGOs and private organizations I have learned how sustainability can not only be economically efficient, but also positively impact the world!” — Magdalena (Maggie) Garzynski; Candidate, Masters of Science in International Relations, London School of Economics and Political Science ’12; B.A. Economics, Providence College ’10.

“Interning at NGO Sustainability has given me great insight into what running an NGO is like.  I have gotten a first hand look at how civil society interacts with the business world and the world of international relations.  This internship has expanded my knowledge of green energy and sustainable development in ways that I could never have foreseen.” — Asher Talerman, Middlebury College ’16

The internship I did with NGO Sustainability provided me with invaluable insight into both the social and economic implications of a green and sustainable environment. I hope that both this knowledge and the personal and inter-personal skills that I gained through this internship will allow me to help improve this generation’s outlook on development and environmental conservation.” —Alina Leuca, Hunter College ’16

“This internship has helped me expand my knowledge on the many alternatives to our current energy resources and has refined my understanding of the intricacies of  sustainable development.” — Ayah Zaki, Columbia University ’15

“I feel I have learned more lessons from this internship at NGO Sustainability than any of my technical classes have offered me. The knowledge and expertise I gained by working here alongside other dedicated interns has made me realize the impact a group of individuals with a common goal can have.” — Melissa Serrano, Providence College ’18
