Volunteers and Interns

The Council has a deep and abiding respect and appreciation for the valuable work performed by volunteers. Volunteers are welcome to help for limited or extended periods of time. The work they do may involve clerical tasks, assisting at events, or manage projects. All are deeply appreciates.

Among the possible role for interns at the Council are:

  • Assistance with video library.
  • Computer skill - membership and data entry.
  • Assistance at events.
  • Office assistant.
  • Management of a conference on African World Foreign Policy.
  • Member development.
  • Cable Television Outreach.
  • Cable Television Library (making it available to the public and schools).
  • College and university Liaison project.
  • Audio-Visual assistant.
  • Posting addresses on the Internet enables the Council to make every address available to all members. It allows the distinguished speakers program to be shared with those not attending formal presentations.

    Educational conferences uniquely bring together faculty and students from around the state and give them a rare opportunity to hear and meet with policy makers. Sponsorship costs vary. Sponsors are thanked at the reception, when the speakers are introduced.

    Internships may involve a combination of miscellaneous tasks or focus on a single project. A formal, recognized internship must last at least ninety hours. Internships for academic credit may be arranged in accordance with college rules. To apply for an internship, forward a short resume, a short statement of your interest in the Council and its activities, and, of course, our name , address, phone numbers and e-mail and fax/or fax, if available. You may send your information by fax, e-mail or mail.

Visit a place that you've never been before and learn to see things a little differently.

When we are away, we seem to look outside of our selves, gaze at amazing people and faces and things that make a place memorable.

It helps to bring perspective into our world. In the case of Africa, history's most fateful continent brings a very special sort of dimension to our life experience. Going to Africa really matters.

It is always a little more than a vacation. It is a fulfillment, a social and historical pilgrimage.
