ocations: Headquarters Locations: United States
Work Type : Internship

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

For every child, evaluate

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has been advocating for women and children for more than 60 years. The work in this area is supported and integrated across several divisions at UNICEF, including the Evaluation Office. The UNICEF Evaluation Office supports the organization’s 135+ country offices in finding solutions for the world’s most vulnerable children. The Office conducts strategic, thematic, programmatic and country level evaluations. It assures the quality and use of UNICEF evaluations by establishing norms, standards and guidelines and by knowledge sharing and networking.  The Office’s new unit, ‘Innovation, Learning and Uptake (ILU)’ is dedicated to enhancing the use and application of UNICEF evaluation’s findings and recommendations through adopting and applying new innovations. It engages with other UNICEF divisions that are testing and scaling new partnerships, technologies and collaborations in some of the world’s most difficult operating environments. By doing so, UNICEF plays a key role in shaping the policy and practice of evaluation. This internship is an opportunity for a graduate student to create innovative designed products in a UN agency that is present in more than 135+ countries. 

Under the supervision of the Innovation Specialist, the intern will support specific tasks related to evaluation review, knowledge management, publication and communication of the Innovation, Learning and Uptake (ILU) Unit in Evaluation Office.
