Every internship and volunteer job is done online. Staff members can work on their own time, and a time-keeping program can keep records of how many hours they work. Interns and staff volunteers meet with their managers once a week at an agreed time.

How Many Hours Does an Intern or Volunteer Work per week at Genocide Watch?

During the first week of internship, new volunteers or interns must do the full Genocide Watch training and then work at least 20 hours a week. After their first three months, staff can ask to keep working for Genocide Watch as volunteers. If chosen, they will have to work for Genocide Watch at least ten hours per week.

Students who do internships are expected to work the number of hours per week that their schools require for credit. During the school year, internships have hours and start dates that depend on the intern’s internship program and class schedule.

Genocide Watch interns and volunteers will be supervised by the Genocide Watch management team, which is made up of former Genocide Watch interns who now work for human rights NGOs, a public health company, several graduate schools, and Prof. Gregory Stanton.
