SDDC interns are students passionate about diplomacy and international affairs, who come from diverse backgrounds and bring their unique experiences and perspectives to our team. They contribute their time to SDDC by helping develop everyday content, while at the same time improving their skills and learning about the work of a local San Diego non-profit. As the backbone support of our organization, our interns assist in developing material for marketing, program planning, operations development, executive affairs, event planning, membership leads, and data analytic efforts to enhance our organization.
