Become a Member of Geneva Interns Association

 Membership to the GIA can be obtained by purchasing the GIA Card.

Please below for details on how to obtain the card and its advantages.

GIA Card

Here at GIA, we know your day doesn’t end when the work day finishes. We also know that Geneva is one of the most expensive cities in the world (seriously, in 2012 it was rated the 3rd most expensive city in the world). Affording a social life can therefore be especially difficult on the “salary” of an intern.

To help you get the most out of your time in Geneva, GIA has been working hard to get deals for restaurants, bars, clubs and other entertainment. Hopefully with the benefits of the GIA card, you will be able to stress a little less, stretch your franc a little further and enjoy a little more after all your hard work saving the world across IOs and NGOs.

Who: All interns across UN organizations, NGOs and permanent missions
What: GIA card
Where: Email us at to get yours*!
When: For the entire length of your internship
Why: Because at GIA, we are one of you!
How: It cost only 10CHF for full access to every deal we get!

*To get the GIA card you will need to email us an official document containing your internship dates AND a photo.
