Niagara Foundation, founded in Chicago in 2004, is a non-profit organization with branches currently in Michigan, Missouri, Indiana, Ohio, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, and Wisconsin. The foundation is committed to building global bridges locally by convening dialogue that fosters understanding, respect, and acceptance. Niagara Foundation envisions a community in which people from all walks of life interact with each other and cooperate to serve their communities, thereby strengthening civil society and promoting the development of shared human values.

Niagara Foundation offers a highly competitive internship program that gives students and recent graduates the unique opportunity to, through professional contributions, foster our organization’s success. Interns are assigned a long-term project that they work on during their 12-week internship in addition to daily responsibilities. Diverse long-term project assignments include working on new program development, creating strategic plans, conducting research and analysis, as well as contributing to the organization of department-specific programs. Because we are a non-profit organization, our internships are unpaid.
