NOCDC offers internships to undergraduate and graduate students majoring in International Relations, Political Science, Non-Profit Management, or related fields. Interns work in the office at least 2-3 days per week. A one-semester commitment is preferred. College credit may be arranged in coordination with the appropriate department head. Email us at if you are interested in learning about upcoming internship availabilities!

NOCDC's professional resources, are local professionals-- NGO leaders, entrepreneurs, educators, government officials, and more-- who take time out of their day to meet with international visitors whose program themes correspond with their work. We could not continue our work without the hundreds of people who volunteer their time each year.

In recognition of the time that local professionals have dedicated to our visitors, NOCDC awards the Outstanding Citizen Diplomat Awards each year. Congratulations to our 2015 Outstanding Citizen Diplomats, the Bureau of Governmental Research, the Office of the Independent Police Monitor, and the New Orleans Business Alliance.

Learn more about our upcoming visitors and how you can get involved.
