Global Americans is committed to the development of young professionals aspiring to a career focused on Latin America and the Caribbean. Our internship program provides students and graduates with the skills and experience needed to begin their careers in the private sector, government, or civil society.
Working at a small organization, our interns regularly edit columns from the region’s most seasoned experts, write questions for presidential candidates around the region, and pitch their own ideas for new projects. All interns also have an opportunity to publish their own article with Global Americans. Our unique program is designed to make sure that all participants have the opportunity to leave their mark on the Latin America and Caribbean policy space.GA Internship Brochure - Summer 2021
