CDA Interns: In the last few years, we have had a number of young people come through our doors – bilingual, interested in the region, eager to learn more about Washington and Capitol Hill – who have done great things for us. We want more.

But you don’t have to be young or bilingual. If you have a commitment to our cause and a desire to share your time working on issues and ideas of importance to the Americas, please let us know.

Interested candidates should send a resume and a cover letter outlining interests, qualifications and availability to Simone Duval.  We provide a small transportation stipend. For more information, including a description of the internships offered at CDA, click here.

The Stephen M. Rivers Memorial Internship

The Center for Democracy in the Americas created a paid internship for each academic year to honor the memory of Stephen Rivers, a remarkable friend, a renowned publicist for Hollywood celebrities, a political activist, and someone who devoted much of his professional life to building cultural bridges between the U.S. and Cuba.

Become a volunteer

The Center for Democracy in the Americas is a small organization with a big place in its heart for volunteers.

We welcome your ideas.

If you can’t spend your time, share your ideas. Here at CDA, we’re trying to reform U.S. policy toward the nations of the Americas. We welcome the opportunity to learn more about the region from the people who are doing the work, doing the research, and doing the thinking that can help modernize our country’s approach to the people, the nations, and the movements of the region.

To the thinkers and the doers, we welcome volunteers at the CDA.
