Innovation Encouraged

Here you will discover an entrepreneurial culture that fosters innovation and enables staff to work with relative autonomy and take individual initiative. This allows us to craft tailored strategies that best fit the needs and objectives of each client rather than relying on conventional responses to solving problems. We are renowned for our technical expertise, commitment to client satisfaction and contributions to new knowledge in public health.

Do Your Best Work

We encourage everyone to develop and use their skills and capabilities to the best of their ability along with providing the resources they need to succeed.

Each staff member shapes our reputation and shares responsibility for helping achieve our mission. We believe that we do our best work when individuals with different backgrounds and perspectives are fully engaged in our programs. Our staff embodies our commitment to diversity in race, culture, geography, sexual orientation, and knowledge.

Building Healthy Cities aims to work with city officials to incorporate health into urban planning and refocus city policies with a health equity lens.

Learn and Laugh

We expect a lot from our staff but recognize that no one can thrive professionally without enough time to cultivate a personal life. We promote a balance of work, family, and fun in and outside of the workplace. We set aside time to mark our milestones, acknowledge our successes, and reflect on the challenges we’ve encountered along the way. Learning and laughter are hallmarks of our corporate culture.

Internships at JSI

JSI has internship opportunities for students and recent graduates who would like to learn about public health work in both the United States and international settings.

There are many different types of internships at JSI that allow students to gain insight into public health programs—or business operations, IT, and communications. JSI staff work closely with each intern to ensure that they have a fulfilling experience and contribute to the organization’s daily work in a meaningful way.

After their time with JSI, interns are asked to write about their internships to reflect on their work. Read some of our previous intern’s experiences.
