AFJN facilitates internship opportunities for individuals who share the organization’s values and dedication to U.S. relations with Africa that foster justice and peace.

AFJN accepts applications on a rolling basis, however applications for internships done for credit must be received no less than a month prior to the beginning of the semester in question. Responsibilities of interns will vary according to each candidate and his or her abilities and interests.

Responsibilities may include: issue research and analysis, direct advocacy, writing for AFJN website and newsletter, attending meetings and conferences, database entry, website maintenance, and event organizing.*

Interns are not paid, but daily transportation costs will be covered. Interested candidates can submit the following form and must attach a cover letter, writing sample (less than 5 pages), and your resume.

*In light of the COVID-19 Pandemic, AFJN internships will be done remotely until the states remove the stay-at-home orders.  This includes participating in teleconferences and collaborative projects hosted on the cloud.
