An internship at the AHA will provide an opportunity to support the organization’s current work: advancing humanist values and progressive issue advocacy, focusing on church-state separation, civil liberties, reproductive freedom, human rights, and equality.

Secular Coalition for America

The Secular Coalition for America has internships available year-round at our office in Washington, DC. All ages and stages are encouraged to apply. SCA interns become a valuable addition to our staff and work most closely with the staff member directing their area of interest. We are currently seeking those interested in expanding their skills and experience in the following areas: communications, philanthropy, graphic arts, and office administration. In a small shop like ours, there’s some overlap in these areas.  Interns are encouraged to find the spot that is most satisfying and beneficial personally and professionally while making a much-appreciated contribution to our mission.

Our mission is to increase the visibility of and respect for nontheistic viewpoints in the United States and to protect and strengthen the secular character of our government as the best guarantee of freedom for all. Please consider sharing your talents with us! Contact our Executive Director at
