An internship at SID-US is an invaluable opportunity for young people interested in pursuing a career in international development. As a Program Associate, you will meet high-level professionals with years of experience in the field and in Washington, DC – perhaps even your future employer! Apply here.
All internships are remote for the foreseeable future and based on the recommendations set by the CDC and city/state guidelines. SID-US staff may return to the in-person setting in 2022, but we still encourage applicants outside of the DMV area to apply.
The dates for the internship are negotiable. Additionally, the SID-US staff is committed to helping dedicated individuals find jobs, build their resumes, and develop skills that will be critical to future success in the professional sphere.
Please click on Apply Now below to submit the application form. You will be asked to share your resume, a cover letter, 3 professional references, and a writing sample with your application. Applications are received on a rolling basis until all positions are filled.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
The Workgroup or Network Associate position at SID-US is an opportunity for young professionals to get more involved with our several workgroups and networks.

This role will be focused on managing various virtual and communications platforms for the workgroups and networks and help implement continued interaction between Co-Chairs and members. Please note that this is a volunteer opportunity and not an internship or full-time role with SID-Washington.
