Additional Information

Intern will be part of American Spaces Korea team composed of four staff members and one Korean intern. American Spaces Korea is part of Public Diplomacy section, U.S. Embassy Seoul and consists of the American Center Korea and four American Corners in Busan, Daegu, Gwangju and Pyeongtaek (open in June). They serve as programming platforms targeting our key audience in support of United States foreign policy objectives as well as supporting five pillars of American Spaces worldwide: providing accurate information about the USA, offering English language learning opportunities, engaging alumni of U.S. exchange programs, cultural & skills development programs, and promoting study in the USA.

Intern will assist with a variety of dynamic U.S. Embassy Public Diplomacy programs that Spaces team organize – the beauty of American Spaces programs is that we can be as much as creative to organize programs in wide ranges of topics targeting audience from established opinion leaders of government officials, NGO leadership, professors, and entrepreneurs to evolving voices of North Korean defector community, young professionals, leading college students and start-up.

Intern will also have opportunities to engage with Korean target audience as virtual programs are now part of American Spaces program formats with COVID-19 circumstances. Through this internship, intern will be able to learn about how to bring positive changes to individual lives, communities, bilateral and regional relations and global challenges, working with dedicated team members on exciting projects.
