Internship Application
The African Community Center is always on the lookout for new energy and support for our work and community. Interns play a key role in helping us further our mission as an organization: to help refugees rebuild safe, sustainable lives in Denver through supportive networks of people, services, and community activities. Each intern adds new richness to our community, bringing their past experience, ambition, and passion, while learning new perspectives and skills through their time spent in a diverse community setting. Our goals for interns are: that they grow as individuals, personally and professionally; that they help us achieve more than we otherwise could; we become deeper advocates for the community we are a part of and the individuals we work with; we gain new understandings and experiences; and we build greater connections and exchange between individuals. Interns play a key role in the meaningful work do and we strongly value their investment. It is not without their help, with which we can continue to further our mission in a more impactful way, develop new ideas and approaches, and invest in the lives of our community now and into the future. The African Community Center offers a variety of ways interns can get involved with ACC and the people, families, and communities that are strengthened with the work we do. Internships may be demanding or even uncomfortable at times, yet there is much to gain in these experiences. Internships at ACC will never be the same day to day. You can expect during an internship to come into contact and gain unique perspective from a variety of individuals from varying places, cultures, languages, religions, abilities, ethnicities, generations, sexual orientations, genders, beliefs, traditions, and customs. As an intern, you will gain one of kind insight into the work ACC does within and surrounding our community. At ACC, we value the voices and contributions of each member of the community, meaning we value you and your contributions. As we help our refugee community members rebuild their lives in Denver, we value the fact that we are all learning together and increasing the potential and strength of the individuals throughout the community. If you are ready to make a commitment to our mission, our values, and our vision at ACC, we are ready to warmly welcome you.
