AIDS Foundation of Chicago offers a wide variety of internships throughout each year, and are designed so students experience a real world environment connected to their academic learning. Those interested in pursuing a career in nonprofits, social services, policy/advocacy, government relations, non-profit business development, and other related areas will find an environment at AFC that offers focused learning and a quality internship experience.
Interns will learn about contemporary issues related to the work done at AFC, including how projects make a difference in the lives of those affected by and living with HIV and related chronic diseases.
Internships become available throughout the year, and we work with those selected to accommodate each person’s academic calendar and schedule to create a flexible learning environment. Preference is given to students currently or recently enrolled in a degree-seeking program. Some opportunities require applicants to be at least 18 years old. AFC requires a minimum commitment of eight weeks consisting of at least 15 hours each week, with some internships requiring longer minimum commitments. Internships are on a volunteer basis. Credit for academic programs may be available with some internships
