The World Affairs Council has implemented many changes to adhere to social distancing guidelines in response to the coronavirus pandemic. These changes, which include moving all programs online and requiring staff to work from home, have made it difficult to provide the kind of internship experience the Council is proud to offer.  We have, therefore, discontinued our internship program for the time being.  When we reinstate the internship, we will post an update here.  Thank you for your interest. 

There are currently no internship opportunities with the Council. 

Our mission is to create a forum for informed discussion of global affairs that inspires Atlanta to lead globally, and you can help us achieve this.

Internships with the Council will provide you with first-hand experience and knowledge of global issues that impact Atlanta. From setting up luncheons for foreign Presidents and Ambassadors, to arranging evening briefings with renowned C-suite execs from UPS, Home Depot, and Coca-Cola, The Council will help you develop professional skills and establish valuable connections.

Program and development interns support the Council’s program and development teams. Whereas programming organizes impactful programs that inform and challenge new thinking about global issues, development identifies funding sources to support the Council’s work. Robinson Country Intelligence Index (RCII) Interns support the Council’s research endeavors, which include gathering and verifying country-level data, and investigating new data sources for the RCII. All interns focus on highlighting Atlanta’s growing role in international affairs and business.


Please note that while internships are unpaid, eligible interns may be able to receive credit through their respective educational institutions. Interns are required to be currently enrolled in an undergraduate program at an accredited higher education institution and are expected to have a GPA of 3.0 or above.
