Internships with the American Conference on Diversity provide college students with a hands-on learning experience in research, designing, implementing, and evaluating diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives for youth and adults. Interns will have a unique opportunity to work in a nonprofit organization that will ultimately increase understanding of social and cultural dynamics.
Students with experience in the areas of social justice, research, communications/marketing, social media, project management, community relations, or youth development is a plus!
The primary work will involve administering needs assessments, program logistics, corresponding with program participants, and conducting evaluations to provide a summary of the meaningful impact of our work. This program is great for grad students or students in their junior and senior years in college. We ask interns to contribute their best critical thinking skills, talents, and determination to advance our mission. Diversity and inclusion have no limitations because no matter your academic focus or career goal, they will have an integral role in your success.
Interns will have the opportunity to attend ACOD workshops, conferences, and other activities to develop their skills and capacity to engage in social change work. When available, stipends are awarded mid-term and after the completion of the internship. The minimum internship term is one full semester. However, for students with special needs and unique academic programs, we will allow flexibility in scheduling.
