Intern with Us

UNA Boulder County offers unpaid internships during the fall and spring semesters of the academic year for undergraduates, graduate students, and recent graduates. By assisting board members with their various tasks and projects, interns learn about non-profits, the United Nations Association, and how non-profit boards function. 

Eligibility: Applicants should be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree program during the internship, or should be a recent graduate.


Qualifications: The intern should have a demonstrated interest in the United Nations, the UNA, and the role of NGOs in the US. The ideal candidate is able to work independently, handle a variety of tasks, pay close attention to detail, and speak and write effectively.

Hours: Approximately 5-10 hours per week depending on upcoming events and board activities, as well as the intern’s other commitments. Attendance is expected at board meetings and certain events throughout the semester, but the intern’s schedule is relatively flexible otherwise.


Application Procedure: Applicants should email Robert McNown, President at for more information or to submit an application. Complete applications include a résumé and a cover demonstrating eligibility, qualifications, and interest. Letters of recommendation may be requested later.

Donate Your Car

Buying a new car? Getting rid of an old one? Selling isn’t your only option. We’ve teamed up with Donate for Charity to make donating your vehicle easy. It’s a win for all: you get a minimum $500 tax deduction (or higher, depending on what your car sells for), and United Nations Association Boulder County receives the net proceeds to support our program.


By donating your car, you’ll avoid the headache of selling a used vehicle. Whether the vehicle is running or not, Donate For Charity can help process the donation.


You can either click on the link provided Vehicle Donation Form, or call Donate for Charity directly at (866) 392-4483.
