About AFC

Internships

AIDS Foundation 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 the nonprofit sector, social services, policy/advocacy, government relations, social media, HIV prevention, 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 other chronic conditions.

Internships become available throughout the year, and we work with those selected to accommodate each person’s academic calendar and other responsibilities to create a flexible learning environment and schedule. Applicants must be currently or recently enrolled (within the past 6 months) in a degree-seeking program and 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.

Available internships:

The following internships for Fall 2020 are currently available. We expect to post more internships soon. Please send an email to interns@aidschicago.org if you’d like to be emailed as opportunities become available.

Please note: Due to the impact of COVID-19, we expect most internships will be virtual. Interns will be expected to have access to a computer and internet connectivity.

Thank you for your interest!
