Most positions at Search For Common Ground are in the field and do not require US Citizenship.
For opportunities in the US, Search does sponsor H1-B visas for foreign citizens working at the DC location. It is usually a rather protracted process, however, and could take six months or more. These visas are generally reserved for mid-level staff with specialized skillsets, or those who are already working for our organization at one of our international posts. We have an immigration lawyer that assists us on a pro bono basis in arranging the paperwork. In general, we have to have a substantial reason for why that person is the right person for the job rather than someone available domestically.
Additional meeting instructions:
1601 Connecticut Ave, NW in the Caravel Building (right next to Subway). When you enter the glass doors, you will proceed through the small lobby to the elevator bay on your left-hand side. Take the elevators to the 4th floor, where the conference room is located that we will be meeting in. Take a right when you exit the elevators, and the conference room is through the dark painted doors straight ahead.
