The Communication Intern will work from the UNICEF Zonal Office in Rio de Janeiro/RJ, 20h per week (4h a day: from Monday through Friday).

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, rights

UNICEF Brazil country programme (2017-2021) includes four major programmatic areas of focus: (1) social inclusion; (2) strengthening public policies to better reach the most vulnerable; (3) protection from the worst forms of violence; and (4) citizen (including adolescent) engagement.

At field level, UNICEF Brazil utilizes two major initiatives to achieve results for children: the UNICEF Municipal Seal and the Urban Centers initiative. In urban centers, UNICEF works with a focus on reducing intra-municipal inequalities, specially dialoguing and engaging with adolescents from vulnerable areas of the cities. In an integrated way, UNICEF and partners cooperate with the government level in different thematic areas as violence prevention, scholar inclusion, safe and inclusive mobility, youth employability, selfcare and self steam promotion. Those are some key issues that UNICEF has worked in its communication and advocacy strategy to influence decision makers and general public perception.
