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

Council Internships: Working For Your Future

The intern experience is real world – it is extraordinary, educational, and challenging.

  • Our interns learn the "how-to" of basic customer service and event planning.
  • They help host large public programs as well as one-on-one connections.
  • They help plan logistics for national and international officials.
  • They also gain key insights about the local North Texas community.

Many of our traditionally unpaid interns have gone on to careers in the public and private sectors and use their Council experience to deal with international and national projects.

The Council seeks sharp college or high school–level talented, passionate, energetic individuals to help us accomplish our daily missions. (Our intern program may translate into college credit – consult your academic advisor.)
