Working with Us

Join our dynamic team and make a big impact on children’s rights throughout the world!


As a volunteer for events and projects, you work with the Child Rights Connect Secretariat team to ensure smooth implementation of activities.

DGD Volunteers

This year, Child Rights Connect is supporting the Committee in organising a Day of General Discussion on protecting and empowering children human rights defenders on 28th September 2018.

This exciting event signifies a unique and important opportunity for the Committee to delve into the topic for the very first time, by clarifying the implications of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child as a whole with respect to children human rights defenders. Child Rights Connect is organising several activities with its members and partners: ensuring the participation of children in the DGD itself on 28th September 2018 and organising briefing and debriefing workshops on 27th and 29th September 2018, holding an exhibition at the UN from 14th September to 1st October 2018.

If you are looking for an opportunity to get in contact with child rights organisations, meet child rights defenders and children human rights defenders from around the world, and get involved in organising events (administration, logistics, communications, etc.), please fill in this online form before 5th September!

As a professional volunteer, you provide your expertise in communications, interpretation/translation, fundraising, legal matters or other expertise needed to help Child Rights Connect achieve its goals.

Child Rights Connect offers 6-month internships in Geneva. Internships are for university students and young graduates who are interested in working on children’s rights at an international level. As temporary members of our team, interns are involved in most areas of the Secretariat’s work.

Our internships are advertised both on this website, social media and cagi externally.

Since January 2013, according to Swiss law, only those with a valid work or student permit for Switzerland can be considered for internship positions in Geneva. Non-Swiss citizens can be issued a short-term work permit only with the proven financial support of a guarantor, who must be resident in Switzerland. Child Rights Connect can therefore only consider potential interns with a valid work or student permit for Switzerland.
