THE NATIONAL NETWORK FOR SAFE COMMUNITIES AT JOHN JAY COLLEGE (NNSC) seeks a part-time or full-time graduate student intern to support its growing international portfolio. NNSC supports cities to implement and advance proven strategies that reduce violence and improve public safety, minimize arrest and incarceration, strengthen communities, and improve relationships between law enforcement and communities
In 2016, NNSC has taken steps to explore more seriously some of the demand for our violence reduction strategies coming from countries and cities outside of the U.S. To date, NNSC has completed analytic work in El Salvador, explored partnerships in Mexico, Sweden and Colombia, and responded to interest from a range of Caribbean countries. As we continue to examine these partnerships, NNSC is seeking an intern to assist in a range of tasks to help in building up this portfolio.
Specific responsibilities will be dependent on the intern's skill set and will be discussed in detail during the interview process.
Responsibilities may include, but are not limited to:
Assisting in the development of a workshop of experts;
Carrying out research on violence dynamics;
Pursuing independent analysis of regionally-specific responses to violence;
Participating in partnership development, including possible proposal development;
Creating and maintaining systems, tools, and processes to track the international portfolio's progress;
Drafting and/or editing written materials;
Assisting with administrative duties as needed.
This portfolio requires someone who is a self-starter, can work independently, and has a strong interest in international violence reduction efforts.
Currently pursuing graduate degree in public policy, public administration, criminology, forensics, sociology, anthropology, or related field.
Ability to work with others efficiently and effectively in a fast-paced environment.

The NNSC can support interns eligible for federal work-study or seeking to receive college credit for their internship hours. For full-time interns who do not have funding through an outside source (school, work-study, grant, etc.), a stipend will be available for the term of the internship.
