Internship Opportunities

Are you passionate about world affairs? Meticulous, flexible, professional and friendly? If you’re looking for valuable work experience, want to learn some new skills or are looking to launch a career in international relations, this is your chance!

The World Affairs Council of Oregon is seeking enthusiastic and qualified volunteers and interns. As a volunteer or intern you will have the chance to do everything from assisting with writing and research to helping plan special events and escorting international visitors. If you’re interested in volunteering with the Council please email volunteeratworldoregon [dot] org for more information. 

Compensation and Credit

All Council volunteer and internship positions are unpaid. Compensation comes in the currency of knowledge, new skills, contacts and fun! We require a minimum of 15 hours a week (preferably 20) and a three month (or one semester) commitment.

Student applicants seeking an internship for academic credit must make arrangements for this through their university or college and should submit their university/college guidelines with their application. Credit is entirely at the discretion of the intern’s university or college. For international students, curricular practical training (CPT) or optional practical training (OPT) paperwork is required prior to the start of the internship.

All interns and volunteers are encouraged to attend the Council’s monthly lectures and various other programs, and to assist with the administration of these events.
