The Nuclear Age Peace Foundation is hiring a Communications Intern for Summer 2019.

Interns will join our dedicated team of seven staff at our Santa Barbara headquarters to work on meaningful projects that advance our mission of educating, advocating, and inspiring action for a just and peaceful world, free of nuclear weapons.

We don’t expect our interns to have detailed knowledge of the physics behind nuclear weapons, nor to have years of relevant work experience. What we are looking for are highly-motivated, enthusiastic individuals who are dedicated to our mission and who want to make a real, lasting difference in the world.

Our Communications Intern will assist in the Foundation’s marketing, branding, and communications efforts. Reporting to Sandy Jones, NAPF Director of Communications, the intern will be adept at effective messaging across multiple platforms, and a creative thinker that will assist in tackling one of humanity’s most pressing existential threats.

Projects will include:

  • Monitoring and analyzing NAPF’s social media presence on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram;
  • Managing the Foundation’s use of Google AdWords;
  • Participating in different styles of communications, including email, video, in-person, and more;
  • Contributing research, writing, and other content to special campaigns, such as Women Waging Peace.


  • Strong writer, not just in the academic sense, but also in the human sense;
  • A thorough researcher;
  • Social media savvy;
  • Self-motivated to run with a project, taking something from start to finish;
  • A strategic thinker, from a broad, bird’s eye view to down in the weeds.
