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.


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.
