Volunteer Opportunities

The American Humanist Association is seeking out-going and enthusiastic volunteers for several Regional Grassroots Coordinator positions. These coordinators will offer support, resources and guidance to leaders of local humanist and freethought groups in order to help them grow and thrive.

Internship Opportunities

The American Humanist Association has internships available year-round for students, recent grads, and volunteers in Washington, DC. Interns will develop a more comprehensive understanding of how a progressive, national nonprofit organization works, while gaining valuable skills for the future.

An internship at the AHA will provide an opportunity to support the organization's current work: advancing humanist values and progressive issue advocacy, focusing on church-state separation, civil liberties, reproductive freedom, human rights, and equality.

Internships are currently available in following areas:

Editorial: The intern will assist the editorial staff of our national award-winning magazine, the Humanist. Tasks include reviewing submissions, fact-checking manuscripts and magazine articles, proofreading, assisting in managing the online magazine, and potentially writing editorials, book reviews, or articles.

Qualifications

Applicants should have a background or strong interest in one or more of the four areas. They should be enthusiastic, organized, self-motivated, and reliable, and have an interest in humanism and progressive issues. Interns' work schedules can range from part-time to full-time. Internships are unpaid.

To Apply

We are currently accepting applications. Please submit a current resume and cover letter, including your area(s) of interest and availability, to intern@americanhumanist.org or fax to 202-238-9003, Attn: Intern Program.
