nonviolence ny network BG.png

In direct Partnerships with Dozens of organizations and  United Nation Agencies, Our network is dedicated to advocating for nonviolent solutions through peace education and international advocacy; connecting a youth network to Civil Society at the United Nations, through Internship, Mentor ship, and Training Initiatives.

Our program is built for a win-win environment in which each position is designed to achieve three aspects:

(1) Education, allowing the interns to participate in professional settings with the support of established professionals leading in their fields, giving them the opportunity to learn and grow in their chosen careers.


(2) Advocacy, by guiding the interns and empowering them to go to important U.N. events, helping us strengthen civil society by working alongside our partners to help develop policies that tackle crucial issues of the time. 


(3) Network, having the opportunity to meet leaders who might guide them in years to come, and being a part of the improvement of Nonviolence International network and the opportunity to move forward with our support.

NVI-NY Program's enable people to get valuable professional experience while fighting for our causes.

Geared towards working professionals or students who are either in specialized programs or have specific professional skills.

Our Volunteer Program allows those who otherwise would not be able to join, due to work schedules or other commitments, to do so with customized work flex arrangements.


Artist, lawyers, editors, specialized administrators, etc. all have an opportunity to participate in civil society and work on issues they care about.

The New York Graduate Plan operates as an educational opportunity for university enrolled students and alumni. The program will validate student coursework and allow students to gain first-hand experience learning, training and working within the United Nations and with Civil Society to promote the values established by the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda in the field.

Arizona Research Program

The NonviolenceNY Arizona Research Program brings together a number of peace education and research efforts started in the New York office, mostly related to Peacebuilding, Nonviolence and the UN Program for a Culture of Peace.

Designed mainly for university students striving toward careers in International Diplomacy, International Affairs, and Politics, our program lets those interested gain first-hand experience in the diplomatic struggles between member-states, civil society and other stakeholders at the United Nations.


Our Internship Program works with civil society partners at major high-level conferences and other international agreements, laws, and treaties. Read about our intern's successes.

Nonviolence International New York research analyst intern, Oktay Kurbanov, discusses why he believes the internship program is ideal for empowering students interested in international affairs. Oktay breaks down his experience by discussing the steps NVINY takes to advocate for interns and the depth of his hands-on work. Every semester, Nonviolence International New York recruits interns of all backgrounds and areas of expertise to help with its mission of promoting nonviolent solutions to international conflicts. Using their own unique skills and developing new ones along the way, these interns help develop NVINY as an organization. Over the months of their hands-on educational experience, these interns face unique challenges, accomplish impressive feats and grow as young professionals. These are their stories. ______________________________________________________________ These interviews and the b-roll edited in were taken and edited before covid-19.

Youth and Disarmament

Youth and Disarmament

In the US alone, every day, 51 young people are shot and injured. This number is the equivalent of 15,600 injured young people a year, and yet another 2,900 killed [1]. That is why the youth needs to be able to facilitate the debate and offer their meaningful substantive participation to the disarmament cause.
