Volunteer and Careers

Are you passionate about world affairs? Do you have special skills you want to put to good use? Are you looking for great work experience? Then join us!

The Council recruits interns and office volunteers for a variety of positions on a seasonal basis. Check our website regularly for openings and deadlines. In the office you will have the chance to do everything from proposal writing and research to planning special events and escorting international visitors.

Thank you for your interest in employment with the World Affairs Council of Oregon. The World Affairs Council of Oregon is a fast-paced, global working environment, made up of talented and committed professionals. The Council’s employees are its key asset. We seek to hire individuals who are professional, collaborative and creative thinkers with a passion for international affairs. 

The Council welcomes applications and/or statements of interest throughout the year from Oregon professionals looking to offer their services and expertise.

If you don’t have time to volunteer in the office or provide professional services, you might want to consider being a dinner or overnight host for international visitors! This is a great way to meet new people, learn about other cultures and stay connected with the Council.
