Following the successful inauguration of its internship program in 2003, the Advocacy Project sent another nine interns abroad during the summer to work with AP partners.
The purpose of AP’s Interns Without Borders program was to provide an opportunity for graduate students or recent college graduates to work on the front lines of the struggle for human rights, while at the same time supporting AP’s partners. The 2004 interns worked on a range of projects involving communications, information technology, education, marketing and general NGO capacity-building.
During the selection stage, the Project Manager of The Advocacy Project, Adriana Boscov, made an effort to match the interns’ individual interests and skills with the needs of AP’s partner organizations. By the beginning of May 2004, AP had selected nine interns, who were paired with eight partner organizations.
