Intern With Us!

The US World War I Centennial Commission was set up by Congress to provide opportunities to the people of the United States to learn about the history of World War I, the United States’ involvement in that war, and the war’s effects on the remainder of the 20th century, and to commemorate and honor the participation of the United States and its citizens in the war effort. [Pub. L. 112-272, Section 2(7), Jan. 14, 2013]

The World War I Centennial Commission is a largely volunteer-based organization. Our interns augment our small staff, becoming a crucial part of the Commission. This provides you with significant opportunities and a chance to contribute substantially to our organization. You can help us achieve our mission and we can provide you with great experiences to use in your professional life.

Our interns have the opportunity to work in several areas including:

  • Program management
  • Public affairs
  • Fundraising
  • Web & Technology
