Global Education Motivators, GEM, is a non-governmental non-profit organization organization associated with the United Nations Department of Public Information.  GEM’s main office is located at Chestnut Hill College. GEM works on introducing ideas of global awareness, human rights and responsibility at different school levels. GEM does so by on-site and distance-learning workshops and classroom programs with students, teachers and administrators. Their motto is to “bring the world into the classroom”.

GEM received the UN Peace Messenger Award in 1989 for its work on behalf of the UN and world peace. The organization created UNISER (United Nations Information Services), an on-line UN database that it managed for the UN before the advent of the Internet. GEM has helped various UN Missions and NGOs get a basic introduction to the Internet to learn how to access and efficiently use the various databases of the United Nations.

Internships are open to undergrad and graduate level students. The internship is an unpaid position. Internships are available for fall (September-November, spring (February-April), and summer (June-August).
