Internships

Are you interested in international affairs?
Looking for new ways to network?

 

Join the World Affairs Council of Atlanta Internship Program:
 

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.
