Internship Opportunities

About Our Internships

Internships with the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia provide college and graduate level students with experience in international affairs student programming, speaker events, travel programming, membership management, and development. Tasks will include (but are not limited to) research, planning and development of programs, events, and tours, on-site assistance for student and public programs, digital communications and social media support, attendance at staff meetings, support for donor and member relations, and other administrative support as needed.

Internships with the Council require excellent written and verbal communication skills, time management, strong research skills, and a high level of professional etiquette when interacting with both Council staff, volunteers, and constituents (students, members, Board, etc.). Candidates must have a strong proficiency in the Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint). Basic knowledge of social media platforms and management tools (i.e. Hootsuite, HeyOrca!, Sendible) and Canva is preferred. Special consideration may be given to students with experience in Model United Nations, debate, and/or Mock Trial.

Students who can commit to 2 full semesters (fall and spring) will be given special consideration.
