About AFC


AIDS Foundation of Chicago (AFC) offers a wide variety of internships throughout the year, each of which is 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 learn about contemporary issues related to the work done at AFC, including how projects and programs make a difference in the lives of those affected by and living with and vulnerable to HIV and chronic conditions. 

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. Students must be currently or recently enrolled in a degree-seeking program. Applicants should be at least 18 years old. AFC requires a minimum commitment of at least 15 hours a week for a minimum of eight weeks, with some internships requiring longer minimum commitments. Internships are on a volunteer basis. Credit for academic programs may be available with some internships.
