Internship and Volunteer Opportunities at the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC)

The International Programs unit of the AFSC is seeking people who are interested in learning about the lives of people in other countries. In 1947, AFSC and its sister organization, Quaker Peace and Service in England, won the Nobel Prize for providing assistance to people following World War II. Guided by belief in the power of love and nonviolence to transform evil and injustice, AFSC currently sponsors peace-building and social justice programs in more than 20 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America/Caribbean, and the Middle East.

AFSC programs are firmly rooted in Quaker beliefs; through the years AFSC has attracted the support and partnership of people of many races, religions and cultures. (See:
