The American Association for Affirmative Action (AAAA) and the Fund for Leadership, Equity, Access and Diversity (LEAD Fund) offer substantive programs designed to give undergraduate and graduate students interested in such fields as equal opportunity, diversity and inclusion, affirmative action, civil rights, EEO law, nonprofit development, human resources, web communications, event management, public affairs and public service, real-world work experience in the policy, practice and nonprofit management fields.
The program provides interns the chance to increase their knowledge and awareness of the above issues, enhance their understanding of the way nonprofits work, and observe the legislative and administrative processes of our federal government. Interns are fully integrated into staff activities and involved in membership services, development, web content, training delivery and communications work.
AAAA/LEAD Fund interns work out of our office in downtown Washington, D.C., easily accessible by Metro or several bus lines. Interns may also work from remote locations. Internships are for a length of one school semester. Start and end dates are flexible to accommodate school schedules and we require a 20-hour minimum weekly commitment.
