Internships at ACF are a fantastic way to taste first-hand how empowering our community is and how our interns can make a tangible impact in real time. We hire interns all year-round, with some peak seasons for each specific category. We welcome high school students (9th. - 12th. grade) or equivalent home-schooled peers to apply for our open internship positions! If you are a college student interested in interning with us, check out our Careers page.

As ACF is a non-profit organization, we even offer "volunteer hours" credit for our exemplary, high-performing interns. Our interns play a significant role in bestowing technical knowledge and increasing our community outreach and play an essential role in the decision-making of the team they join.
