About The Exodus Institute:
Based in Washington, D.C., The Exodus Institute was founded in 2017 inspired by the spirit of the Exodus ship. The historic voyage of the Exodus vessel carried Jewish migrants from Europe to the Middle East in 1947, displaced after surviving the Holocaust. Today, more than 65 million people are displaced due to conflict, intolerance, economic disparity, and environmental disasters. These challenges continue to increase, driving forced migration and creating one of the greatest humanitarian crises of the century. As drivers of migration escalate, so too does negative sentiment.
A key component of our mission is to mobilize the private and international sectors to address the forced migration crisis. We aim to create a public awareness campaign, whereby we present the nation’s willingness and continued ability to absorb immigration as both necessary to and consistent with our democratic values. History has shown that immigration is our tradition; and it has defined and refined our democracy. Through an understanding of the economic, political, and social drivers of immigration in the past, we can create an understanding of how immigration today is a continuation of this long history.
Part-time internships are unpaid. Full-time interns who commit to 3.5 months during the school year and/or during the summer are eligible for a $1,000 stipend upon completion of the internship. Our internship program is only open to US citizens and permanent residents or students who are eligible to work in the United States. We are unable to sponsor visas.
