Americans for Peace Now (APN) and the American Task Force on Palestine (ATFP) are seeking applications to a joint internship program that will offer interns a unique perspective of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict – from two leading advocacy organizations – that spans borders, dispels prejudice, and promotes a two-state solution.

Those who take part in the internship program will divide the term of their internships between the two organizations. The joint internship program, titled ‘Partners in Peace’, seeks to identify students interested in exploring the common agenda of the two groups and in working to advance it.

APN is a Jewish, Zionist organization dedicated to enhancing Israel’s security through peace and to supporting Israel’s Peace Now movement.

ATFP is a non-partisan not-for-profit organization that advocates the U.S. interest in the establishment of an independent and sovereign Palestinian state living alongside Israel in peace and security.

ATFP and APN represent different constituencies seeking a common goal: a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This joint internship program gives students a unique opportunity to learn how these two different organizations and constituencies can work together to achieve the shared goal of Israeli-Palestinian peace.

Those interested in applying for the Partners in Peace joint internship program should email Josh van Swearingen at and Sarah Eisner at Please include: a cover letter stating why you are interested in pursuing the “Partners in Peace” joint internship program and a resume. Interns should be willing to work close to 40 hours/week for 10 weeks over the summer.
