An Internship With The Council Is The Perfect Place!

World Affairs Council interns are celebrated for their hard work. In return for that dedication and energy, our interns see the world on a personal basis: names in the news become people they've met; overseas news stories evolve into local missions of understanding.

"I'm going to go back to college and everyone's going to talk about what they did over the summer ... and I'm going to say 'I met two African kings. I met official delegates from Mexico and Nigeria. I learned international protocol. I learned more about the world. I learned how to interact with people from around the world."Evan Rosenfeld, Former JWAC student and Council intern
