An internship with CCWA is a great way for students to experience the non-profit work place and community, while also being immersed in education and global affairs. The Council is fortunate to always have outstanding, hardworking interns who bring developing knowledge in these areas and many more. These young, bright, eager learners bring significant impact to our work, teaching us new things, suggesting the most up-to-date work efficiencies, among many other new and forward-thinking ideas.
