The Eleventh Year of Our UN Summer Intern Program 

The Temple of Understanding's 2016 interns have successfully completed their first two weeks at the United Nations! We are delighted to have such a talented and diverse group, chosen from a strong applicant pool. The interns started off their first week with a tour of the UN and ended with a peaceful meditation session at their visit to the Won Buddhist Temple. Throughout the first two weeks, the interns heard from a variety of influential speakers and attended multiple meetings, even getting to hear from such leaders as Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon and Ambassador Samantha Power of the United States Mission to the UN as they started thinking about their potential research topics. The Temple of Understanding is happy to be able to support their interns' interests in public service and is grateful for their efforts in furthering the Temple's missions, which include commitment to interfaith education and ecological justice .
