The Institute for Education (IFE) internship program encourages young global citizens to begin to contemplate what it means to be a global leader in contemporary times. IFE aspires to cultivate the existing desire for change and a duty to service in young global citizens by applying existing skills while coaching various new skill sets.
One of the many benefits of being an IFE intern is getting to be a fly on the wall as thought leaders, game changers, and opinion leaders speak to Washington’s leadership audience and seeing the collaboration and conversation of diplomacy and civility in action.
These are conversations that are not lost to the echoes of a cavernous room, but nestled and nurtured in the intimate settings of IFE’s event venues that range from embassies, diplomat residences, the White House, and clubs. Attendance at such forums is priceless.
IFE is a lean and agile institution that has room for the thoughts of interns. IFE applauds and encourages initiative and innovation.
