How would you describe your mission and what you do?

Our mission is to inspire engagement in international affairs and world cultures through education, citizen diplomacy, and public dialogue.

Do you have an internship program?

What interns can expect from the Council:

  • Collaborative supervision as the interns work with Program Managers on assigned goals

  • Career advice: interns will have the opportunity to have a discussion with staff, organizational leaders, or selected members of the Board of Trustees who will share their professional experiences and the wide range of international careers available

  • Experience day-to-day operations in a small nonprofit organization with an international focus

What the Council expects from interns:

  • Commitment to the mission of the Cleveland Council on World Affairs

  • Development of and focus on clear goals for the internship

  • Attention to detail in their work

Do you have any internal Young Professional groups?

The Cleveland Council on World Affairs’ Young Professionals Advisory Committee (YPAC) is a body of young professionals who support the work of CCWA in its efforts to engage young professionals and students in our programming. YPAC members do this by providing program feedback and insight to the board and staff of CCWA, leading coordination of young professional events, and serving as community ambassadors for CCWA and its programs.

The Cleveland Council on World Affairs also offers an annual Richard W. Pogue fellowship for Young Professionals. The fellowship gives selected fellows a year-long membership in the Cleveland Committee on Foreign Relations, which is the Council’s in-depth geopolitical dinner-and-dialogue speaker series. In addition to networking, special leadership meetings are planned for the Pogue Fellows.
