Summer 2022 Programs and Events Internship

About TIMEP’s Internship Program 

TIMEP’s Internship Program is dedicated to training the next generation of policy influencers and policy makers by providing students and young professionals with:

  • A hands-on learning experience in which they are paired with a staff mentor
  • The opportunity to refine a set of skills and knowledge to further their professional goals
  • Exposure to TIMEP’s programming and operations.

At the beginning of each internship, each TIMEP intern will work with a staff mentor to jointly identify a set of goals for the internship involving skills, knowledge, and/or experience. By the end of the program, each TIMEP intern will have had the opportunity to:

  • Refine his or her skills, knowledge, and experiences in furtherance of said-goals;
  • Engage with like-minded organizations and practitioners; and
  • Better understand the role of civil society and nonprofit organizations like TIMEP in the MENA policy space.
