Six-month minimum commitment required
The role of human rights accompaniers:
Accompaniers work as human rights observers, providing an international presence to Guatemalans organizing in defense of their rights in a variety of contexts, including precedent-setting genocide cases and local opposition to mega-projects. Accompaniers work in pairs, travel between the capital and an assigned region, share in rural life, observe and report on conditions, monitor the human rights situation and provide a link to the international community. NISGUA trains volunteers and matches them with groups in the U.S. that support the accompanier’s stay both financially and personally.
Candidates should have:
o The ability to document and analyze events and conditions in order to produce quality written reports and educational materials
o Cultural sensitivity; excellent judgment skills; physical stamina; ability to work flexibly in dynamic, changing situations; resourceful in self-care and relational dynamics
o A high level of verbal and written Spanish or the ability to develop it with six weeks of intensive study
o A familiarity with the history of Central America/U.S. relations, the current situation in Guatemala, and a basic understanding of human rights/accompaniment
o Previous experience in Latin America (especially rural areas) strongly preferred
o Awareness of security issues, willingness to work in a situation which might involve risk, interest in individual and team analysis
Accommodation and food covered by a small monthly stipend; health insurance, a re-entry stipend, and a contribution toward international airfare also provided.
The Guatemala Accompaniment Project (GAP) of the Network in Solidarity with the People of Guatemala (NISGUA) trains and places qualified candidates as human rights accompaniers. NISGUA is one of many organizations around the world that employs accompaniment as a vital tool in the global struggle for the respect of human rights. In the Guatemalan context, accompaniment is one tool used in response to the threats, harassment, and violence faced by survivors of Guatemala's 36-year-long civil war, grassroots organizations working for justice, and indigenous communities combating destructive mega-development projects on their land.
This amazing opportunity will give students who are interested in increasing the student vote nationwide, a powerful opportunity to do so—reaching out to schools in their states or other states through the Campus Election Engagement Project (CEEP). Founded by award-winning Soul of a Citizen author Paul Loeb, the non-partisan CEEP works through the state affiliates of the major national service learning network, Campus Compact to help schools use their extensive resources to assist their students in registering to vote, getting educated on the issues, volunteering in the campaigns, and showing up at the polls.
Participating students would work under the supervision of their local Compact affiliate or other partner organization. They'd reach out to college and university administrators, faculty and staff, building on the strong and ongoing relationships that their local state Compacts have with colleges and universities in their states. They’ll be coached, mentored, and trained by the excellent Compact staff and project staff on how to engage schools using CEEP-created resource lists of effective ways schools can engage their students. They’ll then build on these resources and relationships to help schools implement powerful engagement approaches like:
• Distributing templates for student IDs that pass the requirements of draconian new voter laws, enabling students to register and vote without needing to purchase a state ID;
• Ensuring that new students get registered at first-year orientation;
• Broadcasting voter registration and election information links via QR codes on the Jumbotron at football games;
• Including links to Rock the Vote’s registration tool in online event ticketing and course registration systems, and having IT departments distribute a new election information Smartphone app
• Collaborating with campus newspaper advisors to help student newspapers distribute nonpartisan voter guides.
• For residential campuses, encouraging “dorm storms,” where Residence Life works with Student Activities and Campus Safety to temporarily relax normal security rules so student groups can register students door to door in the dorms.
Internship Benefits include:
• Helping fellow students make a major difference by turning out to vote;
• Being supervised provided by excellent Campus Compact staff;
• Participating in conference calls and being coached and mentored by Paul Loeb and associate coordinator Jonathan Romm (who helped run North Carolina Compact’s CEEP efforts in 2008);
• The chance to learn valuable skills from the lessons and examples of a high-functioning team.
The application process is straightforward. Interested students should contact the project at email@example.com and include their resume or other description of their background, including any community outreach projects in which they have been involved.
This is a powerful opportunity for students to gain valuable skills and make a major difference. So we’d love your help in identifying and reaching out to students who are ready for a rich and challenging project, where they’ll assume a leadership role in helping their 20 million fellow students participate in the fall elections. With this in mind, please look at these Desired Qualifications, think about who would be a good fit, and do your best to encourage them to contact the project if interested.
Desired Qualifications for a Summer or Fall Intern:
• Motivated self-starter who is comfortable working via online and email formats and with telephone outreach--including with college and university faculty and senior administrators and professional staff
• Excellent organization, written and oral communication skills
• Effective time management skills;
• And passion for social justice, service, and civic engagement.
