World Affairs Internship Program

August 23, 2018

The World Affairs Council of San Antonio (WACA) is now accepting applications for its fall intership program.


WACA is an educational nonprofit that seeks to enhance the international educational offerings that exist in the city of San Antonio. This is done through a number of efforts, including programming, educational outreach, and community engagement to “bring the world to San Antonio and San Antonio to the world.” The organization hosts interns from area universities during Spring, Summer, and Fall terms. The internships are great for students interested in international affairs or international business, the humanities, non-profit management, development, marketing and communications, and linguistics. 

Interns within this program are placed on one of four main tracks, based on their aptitude and interest in particular areas:  

  • Education: assist with educational outreach, organization of high school and college programming, and work with educators to bring international education to San Antonio students.

  • Development: assist with fundraising, grant writing, and donor relations.

  • Communications/Marketing/Public Relations: digital & print, website, social media

  • Programs: research, planning & logistics including Young Professionals and General Programming.

To apply, students will need to submit a resume, cover letter, and 2-3 references. There is no deadline to apply—applications are received until positions are filled—but it is highly recommended that any interested students apply as soon as possible, as the program tends to fil up quickly.

For more information, contact Olivia Morales Gomez, visit the World Affairs Council of San Antonio web site, or call  210-683-7632.
