A 5-week Intensive Internship for Students Ages 16-21

Since 2005, the Temple of Understanding has implemented its commitment to education of youth by hosting a Summer Student Internship Program at the United Nations. This is an educational program in which high school and college students from different parts of the USA, as well as many countries, spend five intensive weeks learning about the United Nations and what it is like to be an intern for a non-governmental organization (NGO). 

The student interns attend open meetings of the Security Council, the General Assembly, and various committees. This program launches their careers as global citizens who care about the humanitarian goals embraced by the UN. Students accepted into this program have the opportunity to meet with different Missions and NGOs, pursue independent research, learn about different religions through visiting their houses of worship, and participate in community volunteer work.

A New Short Film from TOU!
Support Eco-Justice: Watch, Share, Take Action
Roots of Change: Food Sovereignty, Women, and Eco-Justice

Food Sovereignty, Women, and Eco-Justice

Roots of Change  features women's spirited calls to change our global direction. In this visually striking short film, women warn of the current realities and looming threats of food crisis, climate change, and corruption.  Women's leadership and ownership in local systems of food production are desperately needed - - as is the collaboration of their husbands, brothers, fathers, and sons. This leadership and ownership is what is meant by  food sovereignty.

Speakers in the film come from the Temple of Understanding's events at the  Commission on the Status of Women, the annual forum for advocacy on women's issues at the United Nations.
