An Introduction to the AICPA Voluntary Internship Project

There is a need for interns and volunteers who are fluent in:
The AICPA Voluntary Internship Project is a 2 year program with the main purpose to enable students who need an internship as a compulsory part of their BA or graduate studies to engage in cultural diplomacy and in doing so, to further promote cultural diplomacy and multiculturalism worldwide.

The positioning of the AICPA in the center of Africa, makes it a natural hub for the younger generation and indeed, the past years of the project have been witness to interns being active participants in the multicultural field, where lasting friendships were formed and valuable contacts made, which immediately expanded each individual’s network to all parts of the world.

The diverse multicultural environment provides an excellent framework for Cultural Diplomacy to be practiced on a daily basis within the office as well as outside of the office. One of the main privileges afforded by the project is to work in a young, interdisciplinary and international environment, which serves as a model of successful multiculturalism in practice. The experience of learning to work together in a multicultural and international organizational environment is a rare, unique and a rewarding common experience.

The AICPA invites applications from individuals who are coming from the following fields:

•    Business Administration Film, Photography & Visual Art

The AICPA Internship Project
Intern Led Events

The AICPA would like to support interns who are interested in organizing their own event at the AICPA House. The idea behind these events is to give the AICPA Interns valuable experience in organizing their own events, to arrange activities that the AICPA Team and network would be interested in attending, and to contribute to the growing field of activity that promotes stronger intercultural relations.

Discussion Panel Group
The AICPA Discussion Panel Initiative aims to create an open public dialogue with the intention to raise awareness and create new opportunities for public discourse on important current issues in the field of culture, politics, and society. In particular we emphasize discussing issues that are not discussed enough in public and where there is a need for further dialogue, debate and exchange.

The AICPA Discussion Panel organization team is made up of a group of AICPA staff members, advisory board members, select interns and members that are interested in intellectually discussing current issues and important literature concerning topics around cultural diplomacy.

These discussions play an important role as well in guiding the thematic direction of the AICPA. Through these open debates and discourse the AICPA is able to keep a close ear to the most cutting edge topics and debates in the global society and then react quickly to include these debates in our programs, events, and academic curriculum.
